Cut Book Sculpture: London

 

I've been going through some of my photos from the trip to Scotland/Ireland/England

and wanted to share this amazing sculpture from the lobby of our London hotel: it's an

old book on birds which have been cut and folded so that the pages become three dimensional art. (view LARGE to see the incredible detail )

    Thanks for visiting my Blog and leaving a message!
    I just wrote another but trying to get photo's into it has been a real pain! paulgrand.blogspot.com/2007/01/truffle_03.html#links
    Anouska's Hotel did seem a little more Zen than this one!
    I've never heard of this No 16, but i have been in France for several years!

    Hope you and Martine are feeling better - - - it must be a
    WorldWideChristmasMalady: everyone I speak with has some
    version of it .... . .

    -- - growing up in Lousiana, I picked up a bit:
    un peu - shall we say? Really just enough to purchase
    chaussures rouges or cafe noir ... ... what more does
    a girl need??
  • sophie 8y

    Thanks for sharing a little bit of your past, your history with us !!!
    A girl needs some chaussures rouges and café noir, you're right but don't forget l'amour !!!!

  • studioJudith 8y

    hmmmm ... . can you click on "all sizes" and get a larger format?
    Or you can go to the MY VIEW set and find the photo - Bird Detail
    from Cut Book Sculpture.
    If all else fails , just send me a flickr mail with your email and
    I'll send you a close up :-)
