Monthly Theme Day – July 2015 – Upside Down

Or Back to Front, more like it

Mainz is twinned with more places than you can shake a stick at.

Watford, for example.

(Cousin Graham asked me whether anyone from Mainz had actually been to Watford before the nuptials)

Valencia’s possibly a more attractive prospect and the mating ritual resulted in this sculpture (“Lebenskraft“), designed by Andreu Alfaro, which graces the square in front of the town hall.

Designed in 1979

Built in 1982.

Restored in 2006.

And reassembled the wrong way round.

These things can happen.

Especially in Mainz….

  1. I like the pattern!

  2. I rather like the idea of art that can be re-assembled in different ways! Interesting radiating structure.

  3. super cool lines!

  4. Upside-down, or inside-out, or back-to-front … it sure is a very BUSY image Yet satisfying in its own geometric way.

  5. You’ve made a great Theme Day post. I’m glad you picked this to share with us. I like the bold lines and shapes, the shadows and the blue sky. Nice!
