travel theme: art
Monday, July 2: Ailsa at Where’s my backpack? has created a new travel theme for this week: art. She writes: One of the things I love most about art is how it can restore the spirit. She goes on to describe the Garden of Circus Delights, a fabulous glass mosaic by artist Eric Fischl, adorning the walls of the tunnel leading towards Penn Station in New York City. She talks of how it refreshes her spirit on a hot and sultry day in the city. Then she says: Art can be interpreted in so many ways, I’d love to see your take on the theme.
In a similar vein, this ceramic mosaic mural is on the dyke beside Hanoi’s Red River. The wall depicts scenes of the different periods of Hanoi, along with modern art work, children’s drawings, and paintings of Hanoi. It is said to be the world’s largest ceramic mosaic.
