One big rock

"Specific Gravity" by Reg Yuson, a sculpture and water feature at Bonifacio High Street, a shopping and dining promenade in Taguig City.

This is what the whole piece looks like. No matter how many times I've seen it, it always fascinates me. And I'm definitely not the only one.

I like this very much! Great image, you're right: this is really fascinating and original. And watery enough...

I have never seen anything like this. It is really interesting. It might even be fun to run through on a hot day!

Lois said...

Now that is cool! I would have loved to watch them put it together.

George said...

What a fascinating sculpture! I would want to stop and admire it myself.

Ursel said...

What a cool sculpture. Would love to see it in person.

Pam said...

That is a very unique and creative water sculpture. It almost looks like a spider.

It is a very cool fountain, I like the design.

It looks like a huge three-legged spider. Thanks for sharing, Hilda.

I can see why you're enthralled...even if it looks like some giant spider or alien. ;-)

Actually, quite unusual, and quite attractive.

And very nice photos!

luna miranda said...

i posted this same sculpture/water feature a few weeks ago.:P this "rock" reminds me of aliens and asteroids from space.:p

Sharon said...

Great sculpture. I can see why your would be facinated. I think I would be stopping by to contemplate it very often.

Don and Krise said...

Hilda, you find the greatest stuff! I hope you don't mind me classifying this as stuff. This is so cool! First of all I love most public art and sculpture. It makes you stop, look and it invites conversation. Secondly just about everyone likes water features and this one is as unique as it comes. Another great find.

It surely is the most original fountain display I have ever seen.

GreensboroDailyPhoto said...

These fountains are so happy! You've had your share of water in the Philippines. Glad to see a happy water shot!!!

Neva said...

Wow. That looks very inviting and it sure is interesting. I am not sure how I would feel about standing under it though....

Halcyon said...

This is a very interesting fountain. Is that a real rock? I can see why you could spend hours contemplating it!

Bonnie Bonsai said...

I think this was featured by another fellow blogger very long ago, and it does make quite an attraction. Lovely gravity!

I wonder if there is a planet like that hanging up in the outerspace and dripping water down on earth. haha

Regina said...

Really interesting and creative. Great shots Hilda.

Your EG Tour Guide said...

I can see why people are attracted to this! It's a marriage of man-made and nature made...and it works.

Rob said...

That's the coolest water feature I've seen in a long time, and I'm addicted to garden makeover shows!

Cezar and Léia said...

Modern and hug! Very beautiful sculpture!

Ebie said...

Oh, Hilda, this is a great attraction! Thanks for showing this cause I definitely has not seen this any where else! I just like the fine tiny droplets!

Frank said...

Wow, that is quite the outdoor sculpture. It almost makes you want to run into it and get soaked...do kids (and big kids) play in the water on the really hot/humid days.

The artist must love seeing his work become so popular and appreciated.

Tash said...

totally cool! your pictures ROCK!

ellievellie said...

rock, water, light reflection, metal - it is a fascinating play with what nature gives us! It is one I'll remember! Great vision!

Jarart said...

What an amazing sculpture. I can see why it gets so much attention.

BlossomFlowerGirl said...

I can easily understand why people are fascinated - it's a wonder it is still up there. Having "gravity" in the name is very appropriate. This sculpture is something I'd love to see. It's a wonder in itself.

charlestondailyphoto said...

That is different! I bet everyone who sees it take a picture. Lovely!

dodong flores said...

This fascinates me too. I just didn't have the chance to photograph this...
Well seen...

AB said...

I like this stoney spider design.

White Oleander said...

What a creative fountain.

JM said...
