Photo Reflection of the Day #184: I Think I Found Groot

I Think I Found Groot - 20150913_154305

What Is It

A sculpture made of vines to look slightly humanoid at the Decordova Museum.  

Why It's today's Pick

Another fun sculpture from The Decordova Museum.  I always liked this one even before the character Groot from the Guardians of the Galaxy film.  It's amazing how easily something that we don't think of as a human can quickly take on humanoid features.  It's probably also an aspect of my upbringing (heavily influenced by fantasy novels) that I can look at this sculpture and see a fully realized being, replete with backstory, personality, and aspirations.  I wonder if there is somewhere that has created an entire army of such creatures for people to wander around and encounter in a park.
