THROUGH MY LENS

Last week I organised a group of 10 people to visit the Vermeer Exhibition in Dublin and in the afternoon we walked through Trinity College where I photographed this unusual sculpture..  You were able to turn the sculpture round and today I am showing you both sides. 
I am linking it with THROUGH MY LENS. 


"Sphere within a Sphere" by an Italian sculptor. There are similar, but not identical spheres in 15 locations around the world, and it symbolizes the complexity and fragility of the planet.


Arnaldo Pomodoro says that the inner ball represents the Earth and outer ball represents Christianity. The design of the internal layers which look like the gears or cogwheels of a complex machine symbolizes the fragility and complexity of the world.


Many thanks for visiting and also for leaving comments.
