Nessie?

This is another of the grass sculptures near the Sala Thalia. Maybe because I knew I would be returning to Scotland a couple of days after I took this, this reminded me of the Loch Ness Monster.

I’ve shown the grass sculpture in Parcul Tineretului before. Just below the Sala Thalia there were a few more grass sculptures recently installed. The people give you an idea of the size of this one!

This is the entrance to the Astra library. They managed to sneak a small sculpture in there too – the second picture is a closer look at it.

At the other end of the Astra Park from the Hotel Continental Forum, outside the Astra library were a series of these modern metallic sculptures, so I’ll show them over the next couple of days.

Sibiu is one of those great places where, everywhere you look in the old town and nearby, there is just so much intricate detail. These little sculptures graced what is now a building of the Tiriac Bank (owned by Ion Tiriac, the tennis player who used to coach Boris Becker).

Grass Sculpture

Just up from the giant chessboard was this rather bizarre sculpture, as you can see it is made from what appeared to be grass formed and dried round a wire base.

Egg?

While all the music was going on in Piata Mare, in Piata Mica next door, this sculpture was starting to take shape. This isn’t the finished product (you can see the guys still working on it) – I’ll come back to it later on when it’s done. It always reminded me of an egg.
