First, I know you wish I had identified where these ingenious contributions were located and who made them.  I too wish I could answer all your questions–but I have included  such info when I could find it.

Let’s start with the quirky.

Artist Spencer Byles spent a year creating beautiful sculptures out of natural and found- materials throughout the unmanaged forests of La Colle Sur Loup (where he lived with his family), Villeneuve Loubet and Mougins, in France. He worked together with elements of his surroundings to create artwork that blends seamlessly with the environment.

Byles’ project is intentionally secretive – the only way you’ll see these works besides photos is by going into the woods and finding them yourself. The pieces were not intended to last, and each sculpture will eventually be reclaimed by the natural environment.  “I responded in different ways to each location and worked on at least 20 sculptures at one time.  I worked spontaneously with out any drawings or planned design”
