HD photographs of Le Ciel lui tombe sur la tete sculpture on Pont des Arts - Page 831

We were on a pedestrian bridge over the River Seine called the Pont des Arts, when we took these high definition photos showing a statue and sculpture named Le Ciel lui tombe sur la tete, which was produced by Daniel Hourde.

Enchanted Footbridge Exhibition Le Ciel Lui Tombe Sur La Rete Sculpture

This first HD photo shows a contemporary art sculpture and statue that was sculpted by Daniel Hourde and was named Le ciel lui tombe sur la tete, which in English translates to The sky falls on his head, and this is part of La Passerelle Enchantee Exhibition.

Le Ciel Lui Tombe Sur La Rete By Daniel Hourde

La Passerelle Enchantee translates in English to The Enchanted Footbridge, which is a temporary installation of art works placed on the Pont des Arts, during the transition stage from when the bridge was transformed with see through panels instead of the love locks or padlocks that were damaging this footbridge.

Back Of Le Ciel Lui Tombe Sur La Rete Sculpture

The contemporary art sculptor, Daniel Hourde, utilised stainless steel with a mirrored effect to depict the sky falling on the head of the statue, yet it is not entirely abstract, as the shapes you can see in this sculpture spell out the word Sky in Greek, so hence the name of this work.

Front Of Le Ciel Lui Tombe Sur La Rete Sculpture

You will find that the theme for The Enchanted Footbridge is based upon myth and magic, and here you can see the front of this contemporary art composition with the mythical style figure holding his hands up above his head as though to stop the sky falling down upon him.

Pont Arts Le Ciel Lui Tombe Sur La Rete Sculpture

Daniel Hourde also wanted to relate back to when the original Pont des Arts was first constructed, when the architects and designers wanted it to be like a suspended garden where people could promenade, which is why the sculpture you can see behind Le ciel lui tombe sur la tete is meant to represent a tree.

However, the actual statue of the mythical man is made of bronze, whereas the rest of this particular sculpture is stainless steel, and Daniel Hourde also wanted to utilise different metals in order to relate to the Pont des Arts in more recent times and what it has meant to millions of tourists that used to call it The Bridge of Love.

In addition to this, the Pont des Arts has a very logical name, and the City of Paris also wanted this to become a place for people to enjoy walking over, whilst discovering art exhibitions like La Passerelle Enchantee, again going back to its roots, when this pedestrian bridge used to host temporary art installations.

Info Plaque Le Ciel Lui Tombe Sur La Rete Sculpture

Yet this is a close up photo showing the tourist information plaque positioned on the decking of the temporary installation detailing the two different sculptures in this section including Le ciel lui tombe sur la tete, for La Passerelle Enchantee exhibition, which not only includes their names, but what materials were used by the artist.
