Water World Wednesday


In 1977, our local catalan architect Ricardo Bofill was asked to develop a new district in the french city of Montpellier. He designed Antigone in a striking greek neo-classical way, with huge columns, pilasters, pediments, etc. Of course, there are quite a few statues inspired by greek mythology. One of them is Poseidon, god of the sea and of earthquakes, making the waters rise.

I just realized that today was actually Wednesday… Was sure it was Tuesday. So, I will post this straight away.

This is for Kim’s Water World Wednesday.

  1. Beautifully shown, Poseidon looks like he is gliding across the water!! He was a god, so maybe he could actually do that!!

  2. Your architect has made a beautiful composition.
    And of course I love the part about Greek mythology.
