Centro Cultural de Belém

CCB main patio. Visitors allways enjoy playing with the underground water sprays as they start working when you walk on them.

I love that water feature and the art piece. I bet the water feature is very popular with families.

Don't tell my little grandsons about that!
That's a classy wine bottle tree. Nice kids too.

Your first photo is just amazing. And I wonder how many wine bottles it took to built that fabulous sculpture?

c'est très beau, surtout la première photo avec le personnage (qui fait très science fiction) au milieu

it's very beautiful, especially the first photo with the character (which is very science fiction) in the middle

Hi JM,

It looks amazing!

The bottle sculpture is fantastic. It's almost like a christmas tree. Must have been quite a challenge to create.

I have a small gift for you which you can collect at http://astatalks.blogspot.com.

Best regards
Asta

I love this statue made of bottles - looks like a tree and what a clever way to get rid of empty bottles:)

Underground water sprays! Very refreshing art.

An artist's life can be tough. Imagine the effort emptying all those bottles! ;) I wonder how many they are.

Well snapped!

Virginia said...

You shot these perfectly. I'd like to help add to that wine bottle sculpture!
