My entry for the 'What is it?' contest.

Edit (by August 22th, 2017): it's a contemporary artwork created, on the occasion of the Middelburg contemporary art festival 'Facade', by the Belgian artist Nadia Naveau and it's called 'Figaro's Triumph II'. For some information about 'Facade' please see my additional comment on this one. This artwork has the profile of a human being, but exuberantly, as a party of color and shape. An image that radiates freedom and shows a 'long nose' to the world. The whimsical shaped creation is crowned with a cat staring on its head into the world.

When you check-out this this link, you'll see a map. The artwork has the number 2 in this map.

Sculpture of a modern-day night of armor, with a sitting cat (on top of his helmet) as his family icon. His arms and hands are crossed on his belly(?) over the handle of his sword, and, with that long nose, he's probably a close relative of Pinocchio's, if not Pinocchio himself.

If you've ever wanted to make a difference but found it hard to believe that one person could... check out the Kiva Team Caedes discussion thread and discover that anything is possible.

That nose is certainly of Pinocchio. I also see a moorhen with its red beak. Could be the figurehead on a sailing vessel ?

I'm thinking..

Top of a birdhouse.
As in, a predatory guard.. with.. a perch.

Cat? Check.

Erhm.. some kind of person/sculpture/carving in a suit/uniform of sorts (running from astronaut, parachutist, bylaw officer.. and and..). Check?

Perch? Check.

Those guesses aside..

Very colourful and interesting image. Keeps you transfixed for a while.

And..

But, of course.. thank you for sharing this one with us.

And..

Best of luck in the contest.

It looks like a robot with a smaller robot on top of it with a cat on top of all of them SEA. Could be an ice cream establishment's sign.

I have to agree with Raj - looks like an object that would be placed on a boat perhaps on the bow - Good one Cornelius for the contest and a real stumper!!!!!!!!!

Verrasend leuke foto, Cornelius !
Het is volgens mij een bijeen gesmede combinatie
van verschillende sprookjes figuren.
Gezien op de 'Efteling'?...
Good luck in the contest !

It's Pinocchio in white wearing a specialist suit with a cat upon his head.

Progress equals a trashed planet since mankind is too busy altering it. BTW find the classic definition of Caedes here. Enjoy yourself today (o: because you don't know what tomorrow may bring.

Um ... I like purmusic's suggestion of a birdhouse. The "nose" certainly looks like a perch.

But since that has already been guessed ...

A high-tech, AI, cat burglar?
A portrayal of a Pinocchio parachutist?
What actually turned out to live in that Gnome Apartment tree?! :)
None of the above?

My thanks to all who leave comments for my work and to those of you who like one enough to make it a favourite. To touch just one person that way makes each image worthwhile. . . . . . . . . .. . . . "The question is not what you look at, but what you see" ~ Marcel Proust

The reason why the sun sets in the evening is because it wants to see the sunrise in the morning. I rise in the morning because I want to see them both. RvdB
