Paris, France

Unsettling, isn't it?  Water is the symbol of life and Godliness.  Water spouting from a serpent's mouth becomes venom, the symbol of death and devilish evil.  [2005]

  1. This is an animated snake (it revolves on its tail) at the "Fontaine Stravinsky" or "Fontaine des Automates" by the Centre Georges Pompidou. The conception and sculptures is a joint realization of Swiss Jean Tinguely (1925 - 1991) and French Niki de Saint Phalle (1930 - 2002); both were painters and sculptors.

    A lot of fun to watch all the sculpture in motion and spouting water at:
