Unexpected Art Installation
Back in 2006 on a trip to Paris, I stopped by the Pantheon for a visit and I found the inside completely full of a cobweb-like work of art. The work was called Laviathan Thot by the Brazilian artist Ernesto Neto. It was certainly an interesting and most unusual piece of art. It was described as a "contrast between the animality of tulle-and-polystyrene creature suspended under the dome of the Pantheon, with the weight of History and the cultural layers of this landmark".
I must say it was quite an interesting sight in such an old and historic building.
If you would like to see some of Neto's work, check this web site. I have to say, he does some very unique installations.
