Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
I hope you all have had a wonderful weekend and I hope that you have found the inspiration to respond on our "weekend-meditation". I had a nice weekend at work and in my bed, I was on the nightshift.
This month we are exploring all kinds of modern art. We have seen architecture, paintings and sculptures and today I have another nice and beautiful piece of modern art for you. Today I love to share a sculpture created by the Spanish artist Jaume Plensa titled Mirror. Let me tell you a little bit about Jaume Plensa.
Since 1980, the year of his first exhibition in Barcelona, he has lived and worked in Berlin, Brussels, England, France and the United States, as well as the Catalan capital.
Actually and until late September 2017, the MAMC-Musée d’art moderne et contemporain, Saint-Étienne Métropole, shows his latest works.
Jaume has made wonderful sculptures and it's for sure worth to visit his own website (as mentioned above). Here is the sculpture "mirror" to inspire you:

A sculpture with the same kind of material stands in the harbor of my home-town and that sculpture we will see later this month.
I found a nice tanka somewhere in my archives and I think this one can be written inspired on this sculpture again:
my hair turned gray and thin
deep wounds of time
however ... I smile as I see the cherry
bloom again, another year to my account
