Unusual Fountain/Sculpture of the Week

'Nine Floating Fountains' by Isamu Noguchi. In Osaka, Japan.

A series of cubes that seem to 'float' on the jets of water flowing from them, built for the World Expo in Osaka. More details on Isamu's life here,  and there's a museum dedicated to his work in New York.

  1. O.K., this is the same man as 'Sam' Noguchi that made all the furniture designs. Very interesting, I wasn't aware of the 'floating' sculptures. Very nice.
