Musical Phoenix Bird



This depiction of the Phoenix Bird might take a little imagination from some people.

This one can be found in the entrance courtyard to the Musical Instrument Museum and  it therefore, has a bit of musical instrument theme to it.



























This sculpture was created by Louis Halleux, Belgian sculptor.  He named the piece appropriately enough "Phoenix".

It certainly looks like it's 'rising'!

Very unusual but also makes you look at it for a long time. I find it interesting. If you like you can link up with the "Through My Lens" meme as well. Link is below.

If I ever make it to P- seems like a place I'd like to visit. The sculptures are enticing.

I like the second view better. It's quite an interesting sculpture!

Oh it's wonderful!

In this day and age, it might be titled "Hands up. Don't shoot."

It's a good thing you told us what it was because I don't think I would have ever figured out that it was the Phoenix. I see it as a good piece of art to be displayed at the musical instrument museum but ... I suppose I just like more traditional stuff!

After a moment, the look of a phoenix is there.

It looks like it was designed to be played. I wonder if it can be played.
