Rui Miragaia

The last few weeks I have been focusing on Portugal because I visited Lisbon last week, everything so far has been from research and now I am going to share a few personal finds and experiences of the city.
One evening we stumbled upon this giant, kinetic, paper mache rooster sculpture by Rui Miragaia. It is situated in Martim Moniz Square, Lisbon. As it is outside and has been exposed to the weather for a number of months, it is a beautiful, if slightly disheveled bird made even more magical by its survival in the sun, the wind and the rain.
