The other day I was wandering around SL with my camera, trying to relax.
I stopped at Ocho Tango to take some pictures. The area was a bit smaller than I had imagined, so I was camming around to see what I could see.
Off in the distance, I noticed some statues. Intrigued, I wandered closer and found a fantastic art installation by Mistero Hifeng.
I was confused at first, because I had landed at Ocho Tango, but then realized that I had crossed a parcel boundary into Cammino e Vivo Capovolto.
Which, according to Google translate, means ‘walk and live upside down.’ 😀
I’ve seen some of Mistero’s work before and loved it.
Some amazingly powerful images here.
I stood around for several minutes just trying to take it all in. I went back before writing this post to get some additional information and found pieces I had missed previously, so make sure you take the time to wander and see all the fantastic pieces.
I love this bridge with all the statues carrying umbrellas. Some of the pieces convey such a feeling of sadness and loss, but looking at them gives me so much joy.
The way the light is breaking through the trees and illuminating the broken figure below – poetry for my soul.
In front of the bridge is this trio of broken ladies. I’ve been there – broken, shattered, and wondering how on earth you can make yourself whole again.
It’s an amazing body of work – if you have even a few free moments, stop by.
You won’t be disappointed.
