Wow a very colorful bench! I love thos tiles =)
Tiles and art! great capture louz!
It's great to see decorative tiles brighening up a city's day-to-day. Brings art and reassurance to the streets, don't you think?I am in Lisbon,& I know you've seen the LisDP site, which isn't mine (http://Lisbon-Looks.blogspot.com/ - you're welcome to visit!. As a foreigner here (10 years) I tend to see things and shoot what the locals don't. I adore Lisbon & the country for - among other things - the azulejos (tiles), often in original 18th cent. pictorial panels. Then there are the artistic paving stones everywhere. This is a really great bench, which is beautiful to see rooted in Arizona native culture!
It would be nice if every city would install such benches, unique to their own cultural histories. Thanks for sharing this image.
What a lovely piece of art! I like the variety of baskets.
We have benches a bit like this in downtown San Antonio—although the tiles are not on the actual bench. See an example here.
Thanks for visiting all! There are actually 7 other tiled benches, all of them different. Just waiting to get back to that area to get the rest.
