This sculpture was photographed outside the front doors of the Taidemuseo Meilahti (Meilahti art museum) as I walked to Seurasaari, in Helsinki, Finland. I think I've shown this sculpture to you before since I certainly did photograph it during my previous visit during February 2009 (there was lots of snow around it then). Does anyone know the name of the sculpture and the name of the artist?

This bronze fountain was photographed outside the Taidemuseo Meilahti (art museum) also. I originally photographed this piece in the deep snows during my last visit in February 2009. Unfortunately, like the above piece, there was no sign that I could find that provided the name of the artwork nor indicated who its creator is. Can any of you tell me this information?

Dragon on the pathway, near McDonald's in Helsinki, Finland, as I walked to Seurasaari.

This wooden dragon sculpture is another example of the whimsical and clever art that one finds nearly everywhere in Helsinki. Even though I walked past this piece a dozen times, I never saw this piece during my previous visit (February 2009) because the snow was piled up around it, completely covering it. This piece is located at Pikku-Huopalahti, near a waterway behind McDonald's in the Munkkivuori neighborhood in Helsinki, Finland. Does this piece have a name, and does anyone know who the artist is?
