Sugar-made city - The name is "Sweetness", by Meschac Gaba

Yesterday I went to the Bienal de São Paulo, an art exposition that happens every 2 years here. There was a lot of interesting things there, but I have to say, the name of the artists and even the description for the artwork were a little bit confusing, never being where they should be - at least near the works...

 

There are various buildings from around the world represented in this work, all made in sugar.

    This is a very cool model. I love stuff like this. Makes me want to get on that model railroad town I've been dreaming of. Just need to add a few mobile suits and Gojira to it, and you've got a cool diarama. hehehe...
