Expo/Parque das Nações, Lisbon


Bathing Belles

This made me chuckle.

About half way along the riverside promenade at Expo/Parque das Nações in Lisbon is a large, shallow water-filled area with several modern sculptures. They are clearly intended to amuse.

I think they're somewhere about - here -

Clever capture! Do their arms and legs move back and forth? smile

If we can't laugh, we might as well just lie down and die, Ellie!!

Sort of like enthusiatic but incompetent synchronised swimmers. I love it, Ellie.

All my little ducklings |: swimming in the sea :|
hairs beneath the water, legs up in the air.

Not at all what I expected from the thumbnail - how amusing. Lol at Ginnie's comment - they certainly look like they're having a good time!

Delightful - I always enjoy a slightly zany take on a traditional subject ;o)
not my kind of art, good capture though
Great fun shot Ellie. It made my day!

Bathing beauties - not very elegant but I believe they are enjoying it.

They are quite whimsical. Fun shot.
Looking at the thumbnails I thought this was swans - what a surprise when I opened the picture up! They look like great fun creations. Do the arms and legs can move?
Wonderfully daft Ellie
Well worth taking a few shots of Ellie.

Is that what they mean by "roll on the floor laughing"? Interesting!

I laughed too when I saw it smile Well captured!
Good one! It's nice to start off the day with a laugh!

LOL.. me too! The roughly-hewn figures made me think of the sort of wooden toy cutouts small children have to teach them some shape-handling skills.
A beautiful detail at João Cutileiro´s Work Ellie! Try to find a pic off "a menina mulher" wink
EJWilkins: Thank you Bruno, I had no idea who the artist was - very clever and also with a sense of humour.

I have looked up "a menina mulher" - also a very unusual piece of work, worth looking at. smile
