Love this beautiful indoor art installation called the Falling Garden. Located at the San Staë church on the Canale Grande, it was created to celebrate the 50th Biennial of Venice back in 2003. Look up and you'd see a collection of items from all around the world suspended in the air like little pieces of art.

Components: Plastic berries (India), cow pads (Jura), waste paper (Venice), baobab seeds (Australia), beech, elder and magnolia branches (Uster), thorns (Almeria), nylon blossoms (one-dollar-shop), pigs’ teeth (Indonesia), seaweed (Seoul), orange peel (Migros shop), fertilizer crystals (home grown), pigeons’ bones (San Staë), silk buds (Stockholm), cattail (Ettiswil), cats’ tails (China), celery roots (Montreal), virility rind (Caribbean), wild bore quills (zoo), banana leaves (Murten), rubber snakes (Cincinnati)...

Beautiful.
