A 3-meter-tall, wind-powered musical sculpture made of galvanized steel pipes, it stands high above the English town of Burnley. The pipes swirl to form the shape of a tree bent and blown by the wind, and produce an eerie, melodious hum as the constant wind on Crown Point drifts through them. The Singing Ringing Tree’s pipes are used for both aesthetic qualities as well as for tuning, with their sound varied according to length and added narrow slits on the underside of specific pipes. The sound produced by these twisted metal trees covers several octaves and is said to be simultaneously discordant and melancholy, and intensely beautiful. Designed by architects Mike Tonkin and Anna Liu of Tonkin Liu.
:I know that a lot of Us celebrate today St. Valentines day, share presents, fell in love etc, here in my country we celebrate as well st. Trifun that is like God of wine. we celebrated it with cutting and grafting d grapes plants early in d mornin’ then start with drinking, for me is still early for drinking but I’ll start later in d day with some beer or red wine. ..maybe I’ll fell in love, who knows 😉
.I was attracted by this sculpture cause is fake and thanks God that is like that because if it was real elephant I was goin’ to be sad about that. I hate animal abuse, especially if on d top of it is in use for art piece. the thing is that here is not real animal, but very good forms and positions in which d elephant as object is putted into. and d smile that they always have and d optimism that they share while u watch them.
