Wind Ghost

Built this guy right after I built the Lady Wind Ghost and hung him on the front porch. He was tall and thin with long tendrils that would spread out in all directions when the wind blew just right. We were talking about letting him go into the wild - finding a tree visible from a highway or road where we could hang him off in the distance so he can get caught by headlights.

That would be hysterical.

That would be awesome! "Honey did you see that?"
"See what?"
"Oh nevermind."

We cut strips on the bottoms of our little tree ghosts, it's the way to go for sure.

Excellent idea, if you don't mind giving it up. Good chance it'll be stolen or destroyed.

It looks great, BTW. I even love the backdrop in the photo.

That is funny... I had often thought while driving down the road how funny it would be to put an old prop off the side of a busy road where people might have to take a second look if they caught a glimpse of it. I think this would be a great use of old props as long as it didn't cause an accident. It might even make the newspaper if enough people saw it. I can just picture my Grim prop off the side of a road, glaring at passers by from just inside the woodline. (Not ready to get rid of him just yet though)

I absolutely LOVE the idea of putting that out for random passersby to encounter. One usually thinks of this concept of guerilla art as taking place only in urban settings. It would be so unexpected and creepy to find something like this on a rural back road somewhere.

Even better, make it all from organic/biodegradable material and leave it there for nature to reclaim.

This is the kind of thing that inspires local legends. Please do this and please photograph it.
