Olympic Hydra

This fiery sculpture in the middle of Hyde Park reminds me of nothing more than a Medusa head, I'm afraid, but it is quite jolly.

I'm off on hols again, in between these games and the Paralympics, see you all soon. Posts should continue daily.

It's one of the blown glass "chandeliers" by Dale Chihuly.

Knew it had to be a Chihuly. It's titled "Torchlight Chandelier." He's gotten a bit repetitive, but seeing them in-person is still breathtaking. Personally, I prefer the one in the Tate, but I'll bet the sunshine adds a new dimension.

It reminds of Medusa too. Not a very good association :)
