This week’s theme from Debbie for One Word Sunday is CLOSED
I love this piece – located in the market area of Ennis – a town in County Clare in the west of Ireland…..
….. the deal is CLOSED with a spit in the hand followed with a shake.
The scene depicts two men finalising the sale of a cow.
The cow is none too happy about it!!!!

What a clever angle to take for the the theme.
A great sculpture
Ah thank you Debbie!! 😊 It’s a great piece isn’t it!!!
Totally blue sky thinking. Although this expression I fear dates me, I can’t think of any other way to describe your mental jump from the theme to the action. So typical as well. Congrats.
Never heard that expression before!! But thank you – as always – for your positive words and support😍 🥰 😘
That’s a good interpretation Marie, I couldn’t think of anything remotely clever like this
Thanks Alison… I remembered the sculpture but had to go back and check whether the deal was actually finalised or still in the offing so I struck lucky!!
A very clever take on the theme. Love the sculptures.
Thank you!! XXXX
A unique but apt interpretation, Marie. I wouldn’t have gotten it without your explanation but once I read it, it made perfect sense and I know that used to be the way to “seal the deal”. Imagine a world where you could count on someone’s word! Wouldn’t that be lovely?!!
Simpler times Janet – I suppose people didn’t travel much outside their own community so one’s local reputation was more significant….
Wow these are incredible sculptures..he is spitting in his hand.Lol
Won’t work very well in a port Covid world!!!!

Nice one Marie. A much more suitable sculpture for the market place in Ennis. It replaces a sculpture of Icarus which didn’t meet with much local approval!!!
I never saw this until last month. That Icarus piece is impressive though – I didn’t see it on my walkabout – it must be out on the by pass now??
I love the sculpture and you captured it beautifully. Ä surprising take on the prompt but very fitting.
I enjoyed the twist…..
