Colours

The theme in the Gallery this week is Colours.

During our holiday we’ve been passing this massive sculpture on a daily basis. Its very impressive and the vibrant colours attracts your gaze instantly. During one lazy afternoon we watched the hotel promo video on loop and learned that it’s been assembled using over 3000 pieces of hand blown glass. The artist, from Seattle, flew over with his team to put it all together and the whole operation took about 2 weeks! (Personally, I would never have that kind of patience… But then I’m not an artist). It’s meant to symbolise all aspects of life in the sea.

    That is an incredibly impressive sculpture! Can you imagine if one piece was accidentally dropped?!

    Wow you’d want to be careful assembling that wouldn’t you? could shatter so easily 🙂

    I love blown glass, and the OTT displays in Dubai are amazing. I’d never have the patience for that either but I bet he was paid handsomely for it.

    For one a bit closer to home, there is a sligtly less bright, but no less impressive version in the V&A museum in London.
