by Eduardo Chillida…. he dreamt of this work (3 pieces) for over 20 years before it was made and installed. He wanted the wind to ‘comb’ through his pieces of iron and stone as it entered the city of San Sebastián… huge pieces of solid core 10 steel.
Paleo diet is something happening at the moment so why not some paleo art?visited the caves at Museo de Altamira in Cantabria, northern Spain this morning….just so amazing to see. Because of degradation of natural surfaces in archaeological sites most cave sites in Europe have been closed to visitors,however Spain has come up with a great solution. A whole museum complex has been built to house an exact replica of the original caves, and objects found in them. digital and engineering skills have enabled an amazing rendition of these beautiful drawings.
