As I noted in my post on Friday, I thought of lots of options for Ailsa’s Travel Theme. This one was the runner-up, so I thought I would post it today.
This is one of several sculptures in the Stravinsky Fountain in Paris. Located adjacent to the Centre Pompidou, it is a colorful fountain containing the works of Jean Tinguely and Niki de Saint Phalle. The first time I saw this about 14 years ago, I was surprised by the water in fountain. I had expected it to be well cared for, with clean, clear water and not moss-filled. But, this is how the artists wanted the fountain. You can read more about the sculpture here. It’s a fun place to pause for a few moments on a stroll through Paris.
