The giant clothespin of Chaudfontaine

Built for the Festival of the Five Seasons in Chaudfontaine Park, which lies on the outskirts of  Liege, Belgium, a giant clothespin sculpture appears to be holding onto a mound of dirt and grass.

Designed by Turkish artist Mehmet Ali Uysal, a professor of art at the Middle East Technical University, the giant sculpture is just one piece in a string of Uysal works that rely on flawless illusion. The artist's installation gives a different take on man’s dominion over nature.
