Sculpture Saturday #5

It’s week five of my participation in this challenge hosted by the Mind over Memory blogger and I’ve chosen a statue from the seafront in Nice, near its Old Town.

Neuf Lignes Obliques is by French artist Bernar Venet, commissioned to mark 150th anniversary of the 1860 annexation of the County of Nice by France. The sculpture comprises nine steel beams, 30 metres long which meet at the top. It sits on the Quai des États-Unis, an extension of the Promenade des Anglais.

  1. Wow!
    I would love to be able to share some pictures of sculptures that appeared in the grounds of Chatsworth in Derbyshire but they are on my old laptop and I can’t get to them. One year they created a sculpture park and it was amazing. Each sculpture was in white and I have some beautiful photographs of them. Maybe one day I will be able to get hubby to rescue them for me and get them onto my iPad. Sculptures are amazing things.
