Fossil by Mette Wihlborg

Fossil by Mette Wihlborg

Here is the answer to Saturdays little guessing game. Two rectangular ponds. The pattern in the ponds emulates fossils and corals. Mette Wihlborgs art work can be seen in the Åby park in Västerhaninge. Mette Wihlborg was a student at the University College of Arts, Crafts and Design in Stockholm and has done a lot of public art over the last 25 years.

Is that water in there? Looks like a fountain.

Yes Mike, it is water. Not very deep, a centimetre or three perhaps. According to the artist it is a suggestive balance between water and stone. Years ago a friend was getting married and on his stag party he was made to "swim" in this pond. I wonder if that video can be find on YouTube?
