Love This Sculpture Idea

Mehmet Ali Uysal (Turkish, ) - Skin Built for the Festival of the Five Seasons in Chaudfontaine Park, which lies on the outskirts of Liege, Belgium, a giant clothespin sculpture appears to be holding on to a mound of dirt and grass.

This sculptour is by Claes Oldenburg. I like this sculptour becuase it is scary how it looks like the people are being swept away. I also like how the sculptour constantly looks like it is going to fall because it is on a slant and there is nothing holding it up.
