Weekly Photo Challenge: Zigzag

This week’s photo is a window from a Grotto in the baroque garden of Herrenhausen, designed by Niki de Saint Phalle  (not her real name, that was: Catherine Marie-Agnès Fal de Saint Phalle)

Grotte und Großer Garten im August 2005 006

Niki de Saint Phalle had a loving relationship with Hannover, after her death she left several of her artworks to our local Museum of Modern Art – the Sprengel-Museum (named after a chocolate-manufacturer and art-lover). One of her late works (finished after her death by her assistant) was this grotto, consisting out of three rooms, in her usual rounded, colourful style. This window is outstanding, as it shows untypically spiky zigzags and stars.
