Another Minnesota Rocks project, the second for Peter Morales, “Paisley Perch” is another of his functionally artistic benches this one located in the southeast corner of Como Park in St. Paul. It also has a shape suggestive of an animal, but it’s not nearly as direct as some of his other work.

Initially it struck me as a rather boring bench, but I think it’s starting to grow on me — especially the knobby little feet. Certain angles enhance the feeling of movement like it’s going to hobble away, the tail swishing as it goes.
