Lovely Eggheads

I like these sculptures on UC Davis campus. The first one is Bookhead, placed near the library. The second one is Eye on Mrak. The third one is See no evil/hear no evil near the law school.  There are two more sculptures in this series: Yin and Yan, Stargazer. These sculptures are playful and eye-catching. They are made by former UC Davis professor Robert Arneson. A reproduction of Yin and Yan was placed in San Freancisco. When I first saw the Yin and Yan sculpture, I was intrigued, but not necessarily impressed. Later, I saw more and started to like them. They really enhance the landscape and give the campus a distinct character. Here's another picture to show the scale of the sculpture:
