Vollis Simpson Whirligig Park in Wilson

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and that saying definitely applies to these amazing sculptures on this live feed streaming from the Vollis Simpson Whirligig Park in Wilson, North Carolina. They really are a sight to behold.

These wonderful whirligigs were crafted by the sculptor or junkyard artist, Vollis Simpson, after he retired from his job as a farm machinery repairman. Made from old and disused farm equipment, there are thirty individual pieces, the tallest of which towers a staggering seventeen metres high. To see them at their best all you have to do is hope the wind is blowing in the right direction.
