Sculpted Alcove
Sculpture from the river Maggia, which has taken the local granite as its inspiration and with nothing more than sand, grit, high-pressure water and a great deal of time has created these gently flowing forms. Particularly intriguing is the motive on the wall of the alcove and how it mischievously quotes the shape of the orifice. The trompe l'oeil tunnel effect is a touch of genius.
