What a fascinating structure. It must be interesting to explore.

Jarart said...

Not only is it interesting to look at, it is fun too! And the fact that it is made of cork is so unique.

That is really cool!

Now this is something different. Not sure I'd want to inhabit it, but I bet it's a nice shelter on a hot day.

What a unique sculpture! It must be cool living in a house made of cork and shaped like a shoe. Your photos did the artwork great justice!

Beautiful picture of a wonderful sculpture.

That is one sculpture I like a lot. Probably wouldn't want to live there...I'd keep looking for the wine bottle! :-) But it is cute.

Meant to say you had a great title yesterday. Except that the financial meltdown affected us seniors, too....my pension dropped by one-third!!!

Really interesting sculpture, and I love the middle photo!

Let us drop the 'sculpture' and call it some piece of architecture, I really like it! It is original, pleasant and even funny.

Intéressant ! Est-ce vraiment inhabitable ? On aurait envie d'essayer ...

That is so interesting, JM. The minds of artists fascinate me. I would not have come up with this form in ten lifetimes.

Now that's something you don't see everyday!

Wow, strange and different. Did it sound quiet in there?

T. Becque said...

That's pretty neat. I could see kids loving this!

Dina said...

I'd love to play in there. Cool!

I remember how fun it was to see Portugal's rows and rows of cork trees for the first time.
