Enjoying a splendid view
from its perch on architect Hans Hollein's
64-meter titanium wing canopy over
the entrance to the Albertina museum
The giant plastic sculpture of Dürer's "Young Hare"
will reign over the city until the end of June,
during the exhibition "Dürer, Michelangelo, Rubens"
currently at the Albertina Museum
Another copy of the sculpture
sitting on a giant green skateboard,
will be exhibited throughout to city
to promote the exhibition

Great shots Merisi, I had not realized until now that Dürer's Hare was a female :)ReplyDelete
Oh, a female? You mean because of the pink color or something I can't see? ;-)Delete
