These are humorous talking sticks. I like this one. Very colorful, too!

Drowsey Monkey said...

Now that's a very cool display :)

I do hope they're glued together, or I would hate to be in charge of that exhibit. The responsibility would kill me. Do you get earthquakes there?

VioletSky said...

Sally: I like the way he has displayed certain words...

Drowsey Monkey: I guess if you are going to keep such a collection of building blocks, you might as well play around with them.

Irene: no earthquakes. and no, I didn't try to knock them over!

Anne said...

Anne: some of the words might not be so good for kids, but it is an interesting collection.

You have so many alphabet cubes there. I remember only this one set that every kid had in their homes.

Ladynred said...

That is interesting display and cool yellow!

Very cool idea. Nice yellows!

Dianne said...

Stephanie V said...

I read about this exhibition. They are wonderful. The yellows really stand out.

Becca said...

Those are really cool...I've never seen anything like them!

storyteller at Sacred Ruminations said...

Nifty find ;--)
I enjoyed 'embiggening' your photos for a better look.
Hugs and blessings,

Mary said...

What a unique museum display. I love the yellow tucked in with the other blocks. They really pop.I hope your day is filled with sunshine.

those are super cute

VioletSky said...

chrome3d: who knew there were so many different styles?!

Ladynred: I enjoyed walking around it finding which side of the towers had actual words or phrases.

just me again: somehow it seems a perfect Douglas Coupland display.

Diannr: or trying to recreate it exactly?

VioletSky said...

Stephanie: it was in Vancouver, too, I believe.

Becca: Imagine having all these stored in your house...

storyteller: I'm glad you 'embiggened'.

Mary: I thought of MYM when I saw it.

shopannies: I like the transformation of the styles of blocks.

Pete said...

VioletSky said...

Pete: haha, yes, he did get away with saying it!!

Annie said...

VioletSky said...

Annie: an artist's mind can make it appealing.
