This weekend brought the installation of this Goliath sculpture at St. Paul's UCC in Douglassville for their Sunday School program on June 6, 2010. Goliath took about 10 hours to assemble and was made in pieces throughout the last week. His legs and feet were made last Sunday and they began the process.
In the above picture, my daughter is playing the role of David and has her slingshot ready for Goliath. Below, I am standing with the creation so that you may see the size of this beast. As a reference point, I am five feet, five inches.
I hung some 3' air-filled balloons from the ceiling to fill this large room. They are a great way to fill in high ceiling space. They also create a tremendous sonic boom if they pop! Just ask the sweet volunteers who were preparing for the church's Chicken BBQ dinner! ; )
The picture below allows you to see the large ceiling balloons as well as Goliath and the arch in the distance.
On another note, I did not receive any updates from my blog via email this past week so I am guessing that subscribers of my blog did not receive them either. I AM in the process of researching why this happened and am hoping it is simply a hiccup. If you are a subscriber and ARE getting this one but missed some of the recent others, here is what you missed.
I posted pictures from the Boyertown Library decor that I did as well as announced May's Red Robin Gift Card winners and how to be entered for a chance to win a $40 Red Robin Gift Card in June!
Thank you all for reading and for your support. If you have not noticed, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my job!
