Well my first Wallace sculpture was found at the Mall outside the middle entrance. Wallace is painted as Spock from Star Trek and would be probably enjoying a nice cup of Vulcan tea, but no he has a communicator in his hand instead.
The interesting aspect of the Wallace sculptures is the inclusion of the bench. Are you allowed to sit on the bench? It does say “Please Do Not Climb”, but is that about the sculpture or does it include the bench? Whatever the intention, everyone I saw was sitting on the bench next to Spock, who with those hands could certainly give a nasty Vulcan neck grip!
I like how they have given Wallace both the Vulcan pointed ears, but also the eyebrows too.
Up at the Mall at Cribbs Causeway there are three sculptures. The one outside the main entrance to John Lewis is In-cog-nito. A clockwork retro robot style Feathers McGraw, he is not just painted but has moving parts and glowing eyes.
The insides are a huge collection of cogs and clockwork mechanisms including a huge key to wind him up. All the cogs rotate and click around.
As well as the eyes glowing red, his head rotates, which is somewhat freaky.
…and so to the beginning of the Shaun the Sheep trail. This required a visit up to the Mall at Cribbs Causeway to see the three Shauns that are in situ around the North Bristol out of town shopping centre. You also get the chance to visit the Shaun the Sheep shop at the Mall too.
Set out in the front, this ice cream flavoured Shaun the Sheep is perfect for summer, complete with a ’99 My Whippy and a FAB iced lolly.
2. Shrek Shaun
On first sight I didn’t think this was a Shaun, what with the Shrek-esque ears. One of the few Shauns that has its own backdrop and scenery. You find this one in the Shaun the Sheep shop, along with lots of other smaller Shauns painted by local school children.
This Shaun has extra bling and bees.
These have been added to my page of Shauns and as they are numbered one to three at least that page looks like it has stuff on it, and it isn’t just a list of numbers.
