When I look online I can see a plate on the base that I presume tells the name of this sculpture, but I must confess I missed it. So I have no idea what this work is called, nor do I know its significance.
This colorful piece is found on the grounds of the Tinguely Museum in Basel, Switzerland. The museum celebrates the life and works of Jean Tinguely, whose work I featured here once before.
It was a hot Saturday afternoon and I was hot and tired, so I didn’t check out the displays inside the building. I know that I don’t absorb such displays well unless I am in the right frame of mind – and I knew I wasn’t.
Still I did enjoy a few of Tinguely’s sculptures that are on the museum grounds, and looked at a couple through the windows. It is definitely a place I want to visit.
For today i thought we could all enjoy a splash of color – even if I have no idea what it is supposed to represent.
