            That first image of the chromed-up thingies actually reminds me of those parts in a plastic building kit which we used to buy in the 80's and assemble at home.

              Oh, dear observer, but can you not see how thoughtfully the artist has composed this piece of pieces? The subtle juxtaposition of shapes - circle, rectangle, square, triangle, flat overawed by tubular, intricacy contradicted by simplicity, large looming over small, all carefully displayed to show balance and variety.
              And the space bottom left? Ah, dear observer, that is for you; for your quiet reflection, your wondering contemplation, your eager conjecture as to what could be placed there to rest seemlessly with its companion pieces and complete the overall harmonious complexity of the work.

                Actually that empty space is for those who like to have their picture taken, alone or with a friend, hence the two stepping plates on the lower frame.
                I had to wait a while to take this picture, since a group of Indian tourists took their time to photograph each other in the gap.
                PS>Actually I don't know if that was the artist's intention, though. Your reason may be as good, who knows.

                As for me, I must say that I find this "thing" interesting.Don't think the "artist did it any old how.

                Walls in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria.

                ​I'm not really the right person to translate from Spanish to English but I think we can say that "hambre de suelo" means (more or less) "hunger for soil".
                ​It applies to the transformation of an old district of Las Palmas and takes up a former slogan of South American farmers in the 50's.

                • More and more of these kinds of wall drawings/mureals to be seen in Singapore:

                  Still fairly free from "tagging" though.

                  I'll try to take pictures when I can and remember.

                  • Yes, do. Singapore seems to be a fertile source of street art of every style - fascinating, as are those that Yves shows. I'm waiting for someone to produce a sample in Bunga.y. Local residents would probably have a fit!

                    • By popular demand. Another statue in a style that appears to be popular in Singapore:


                      These nearby "statues appears to be intended to keep children away from the seesaw:


                      While these Terracotta statues seen on a veranda along Grange Road is probably replicas, intended to protect the people living in the flat:
