MOSAICULTURES INTERNATIONALES MONTREAL 2013 (207/365 DAYS, 3.0)


So here are my pictures of the 
happening this summer at the Botanical Garden, 
well worth your time and money. 
I am glad I finally saw it. 
And I was far from being the only one there 
even if my pics don't show the crowd. 
But contrary to other events, 
people seemed more civilized [in general] 
and were gracious enough to leave enough room 
to those who wanted to take photographs, 
which meant practically everyone, 
from iPhones to legit pro cameras, 
everyone wanted a souvenir!!

This competition  gathers participants from across the globe 
where each team presents a cultural reference to their origins. 
I find this is a friendly competition  which makes us appreciate only better 
what others have to offer. 
We need things like that to see the word in a more positive light.


I was impressed by the artistry and amused by the often humorous nature of the pieces.


Some represented some iconic images, 
like this one, 
the Oscar winner from the NFB, 
"L'Homme qui plantait des arbres".



Here, 
the legend of how a woman saved a crane from the marshes.





Pumba?!? 
:D~






As you travel all over, 
music floats about, 
setting the mood for each creation.




The Phoenix, 
my favorite piece. 
This is impressively large, 
of monumental proportion.







The exhibit will be there all summer, 
ending on September 29th, 
so no rush, 
but make sure to see it. 
The ticket is good for two visits, 
and I do intend to return before it ends. 
T'was that good!!

  1. WOW! Incredible artistry is correct! Not to mention your very artistic take on the very varied 'subjects', Bruno! I must say that I was FLOORED by the 'driftwood Horses'! OMG! They looked real and alive and I am sure you helped to bring them to life with your 'work'.
    So, two things to see in Mtl....Glassworks and Botanical Gardens.

    1. Thanks Jim!!
      Yes, Chihuly is certainly a must-see,
      and the Mosaicultures, even if you're not passionate about gardening,
      it is interesting to see. Some pieces are mansized while others are simply gigantic.
      Well worth seeing this!!

      As for my one work,
      some would perhaps prefer to see the real deal rather than my impression of it,
      but there are plenty of other sites for that...
      To me, photography is a mean to achieve a vision, my own!!

    2. Couldn't agree more! I like 'photography is a mean to achieve a vision, my own!'
