Noeud - Kim Hamisky



This bench - The Knot - is featured in a Sculpture Walk in Fontvieille. I love sculptures you can sit on, touch, enjoy.

If you like sculptures you'll be spoiled for choice in Monte Carlo - they are everywhere! This will be the 70th featured on this blog, although around 30 of the 70 were in the Expo in the Casino Gardens and so are not now on view - except just one, which has been installed in the Principality.

There are so many scultpures in Monaco and sometimes I feel like Sherlock Holmes trying to find them, because the powers-that-be move them around from time to time. No easy feat when you consider the weight of a large bronze.

The Knot is by the Vietnamese-born artist Kim Hamisky and was created in 1987.

Love it. But, I was expecting Monte Carlo Woman - 1, unless of course I missed it!! LOL Just kidding with you!

Some of the sculpture I've seen around town is pretty bad, considering the beauty you've displayed here.

They move them Jilly? Whatever for?

@George, we've had so many Monte Carlo women on Jilly's blog! It's time for Monte Carlo Man 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 & 10! :-)

What a neat bench/sculture! Isn't it strange that they would move them? I wonder why...

LOL, I love it.

I guess sitting in the middle of the bench is highly discouraged by the Principality and your doctor.
