WHERE IS IT?

Ed Has A Dream

Knight
June 29, 2005 - Ed Has A Dream

It has been a dream of ours for a long time, to find a Wednesday Where Is It (WWII) picture that one, and only one, person would be able to correctly identify. And yesterday, our dream became a reality. It was quite an artsy shot we took. It was one that you knew that if you had seen it before, you would recognize it. After all, how many places in town can you find an armored mask, outside, with cobwebs, in front of what looks like a chalkboard?

Some people thought the armored mask was at the antique store on Hollister & Modoc.
Big Picture
Some thought it was at Red’s Coffee Shop. We also got votes for Merlo’s Cutlery, Supply Sergeant, Art from Scrap, Woodstock's Pizza, and Berlin (the city in Europe). All wrong. As we said, it was the dream … or as they say in Spanish, el sueno.

On the side of El Sueno Road, the road that begins at a freeway off ramp and ends at a dead end within spitting distance of Cathedral Oaks Road (Hwy 192), there is a sculpture of a knight with only a mask and a sword, next to another sculpture made up of a film reel, a boy scout scarf, printed out web pages and sheet music sealed in plastic, a headlight, a muffler, and a ceramic face. Next to the knight and the other eclectic sculpture is a chalkboard with a sign on it that says, “interactive web site.”

Yesterday, when the dedicated staff of edhat.com ventured to the knight to take some pictures,
Sailor Dude
the interactive chalkboard contained a recently written message about trashcans and respect. We would suggest that you search for the message on the Internet, but we’re pretty sure that even Google can’t index this website. The dedicated staff tried googling some other websites about the knight by the chalkboard. We did find a listing for the High Art Gallery at that location, but the phone number was no longer in service.

Now according to Omirideus, the only Edhat subscriber who was in the know about el-sueno, the art was created by a woman named Madeline, and has been displayed on that spot for more than 6 years. Omirideus also said that
Music
Madeline is better known in her neighborhood for her Eastern Time Zone rooster, that begins his cock-a-doodle-dos every morning at two.

So, without any help from the Edhat dog, Omirideus wins two tickets to Sunday Polo at the Santa Barbara Polo Club. He won’t see any knights jousting on horseback, but he will enjoy a fine equestrian contest on the unassuming grounds of the third oldest polo club in the country.
