Cool art work. Like uma por dia said, they look like amputated palm trees. :-)

The Amit Kapoor structure on your blog looks EXACTLY like the one I saw at the MET this week. I wonder if it is the same piece or Mr. Kapoor made similar pieces for Monte Carlo and NYC.

Ming, the Kapoor Sky Mirror is still installed at the Casino Gardens. So far as I know he did several. Someone wrote about one in England - I forget which city now.
