Intriguing Moonrise sculptures in San Francisco...

On my recent visit to San Francisco I chanced upon another collection of sculptures that appealed to my design aesthetic, a series of three sculptures entitled 'Moonrise: March, October and December', by Ugo Rondinone at 555 Mission Street.

The trio of intriguing mottled aluminum heads remind me of something out of a Tim Burton movie.

What a great open space and public art to enjoy if you work in Downtown San Francisco.

Moonrise: October sculpture

My favourite sculpture is March (mainly because it looks a bit like 'Oogie Boogie' from The Nightmare Before Christmas), although they each have their own individual appeal.

Moonrise: December sculpture

If you like these be sure to check out this other public art on the streets of the City by the Bay, like the Raygun Gothic Rocketship near Pier 14 and the ever-changing giant Hearts of San Francisco.
