Remember that incredibly awesome Edgar Allan Poe sculpture we shared a couple weeks ago? That was the work of artist Stefanie Rocknak, and so is this amazing sculpture, which she carved from a single piece of wood.

Entitled The Swimmer, the sculpture is slightly larger than life-size and depicts a swimmer turning their head to take a breath during the crawl stroke. The sense of movement, both by the athlete and the water, is so palpable that we keep waiting for the swimmer to turn their face back into the water, complete the stroke and swim right out of the photos.

The Swimmer is the third part of a three piece commission called The Triathlete. The other two pieces are The Biker and The Runner. Click the links to check them out.

This is what terrifies me about the ocean.




the few times I’ve gone snorkelling this is the most intensely scary but amazing thing about it, the bit where the reef ends and it suddenly just drops off and you cant see the bottom or what’s down there, and you swim over the edge and suddenly your in open water, and you feel so vulnerable like you’re a fish that lives on the reef, and you finally understand finding nemo
