Stonehearted –

So you think you’re unbreakable
when you now have a heart of stone?

When the past has been discarded
that made you stonehearted.

What if it learns to follow
the dripping water to make you hollow?

Will you forget the sorrows
and borrow a new tomorrow?

Blown Away

dalechihuly  I was blown away when i saw this blown glass sculpture by the world renowned glass artist Dale Chihuly right at the stairs of the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts! This beautiful floral formation of Persian Colonnade is truly a masterpiece. No photos can ever give justice to its beauty and that’s an understatement.

Steel Nature

thetresscalgaryHeading to Calgary Tower, i happened to pass by in Stephen Avenue Mall, just beside Bankers Hall.  I saw this towering steel art installation themed “TREES,”  You can see  white steel trunks supporting slotted overhead canopies at a such a towering height, a great art installation not miss by  my camera and my wandering eyes! 🙂



People Art Installation

Only when you walked towards it, you’ll notice that it’s actually figures of people created by Montreal artist Louis Archambault.for Montreal’s Expo ’67, He named it “People”.   You can pose on his several depictions like emblem of the Sun, depiction of a Pregnant Woman, Three Children, Family, Poet , Philosopher and others. . A cool sculpture that shouldn’t be miss  especially if you’re strolling in that serene park besides the ottawa river. – by JoelF
