Cork is beautiful in any shape.
I remember seeing cork trees for the first time; it was several decades ago, in your country.

They look so organic. Like onion bulbs.

When I think of Portugal cork is one of the things that comes to mind. This is a very nice shot. I also spent some time looking at all of your photos for this month and last. I enjoyed them very much!

I'm sure I've never seen a cork sculpture before...it's very intriguing. I like the design a lot in that it's very airy and free-floating...

Do you know if it represents anything in particular or if it is simply supposed to sit there and be beautiful?

Is it really made of cork? Beautiful work, sometimes contemporary art surprises me in a positive way. Not too often, but it happens.

I don't know what it is but I like it!

Very unusual but interesting. I guess it is seen by more people in the subway than if it were in a museum!

I like the colour and shape of this, Jose. The shape is reminiscent of an artichoke.
