The artists in this exhibition really enjoyed using unusual materials. And then again, feathers ....

Wow!!

Lowell said...

That's wild. I didn't know what to make of it until I saw the 2nd shot. Wonder how many flamingos died to create the "Lilicoptere"?

It's quite stunning, actually. But I wouldn't take a ride in it even if it is "light as a feather." :)

Gosh even apart from the 'creation', there's so much to see in these shots JM. Definitely worth enlarging.

I have never seen anything quite like that before. So many flamingo feathers!

@Lowell and Judy: Ostrich dyed feathers. :-)

Different, amazing and fun indeed!! What great captures for the day, JM! And, as I've said many times before, you do find the best, the most unusual and beautiful subjects to photograph and I'm so glad you share them with us! Hope your week is going well!

Very cool!

Arija said...

Whimsical installation, a cross between a flamingo and the Moulin Rouge cabaret. Somehow romantic, nostalgic and fairy tale all together.
