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!)
If you’d also like to take part:-
- Share a photo of a sculpture
- Link to the Mind over Memory post for Saturday Sculpture
