Sculpture Saturday


This weekly challenge is hosted by Mind over Memory


I’ve chosen a piece by Portuguese sculptor João Cutileiro which can be found in the lake at Mateus Palace in northern Portugal (yes – it is the place on the famous wine bottle).

The sculpture of a woman “sleeping” in the water was  installed in 1981.  The lake was created to mirror the house but I can find no explanation as to why there might someone sleeping in it!  (I probably should have taken an official tour!)
