Two gigantic clothespins

I was once again walking over the internet when suddenly I found this image:

As the internet itself taught us to not easily believe in everything we may find, since with some free time and some kind of Photoshop is possible to do a lot, like putting a sad Keanu Reeves in one billion situations, I did some research and found that the image is real.

This gigantic clothespin is Chaudfontaine Park, close to the city of Liège, in Belgium and was created by the artist (crazy person) Mehmet Ali Uysal, from Turkey. Just for fun I searched for more creations from this excellent gentleman and you may check them if you want through the links at the end of the post.

However the most interesting thing of this “amazing adventure in Google” that I fond out was that there is another artist (crazy person), this time from Sweden, called Claes Oldenburg, who also created a sculpture of a gigantic clothespin. His idea is different, the is interested in building up gigantic sculptures of real objects and put them somewhere. His clothespin, as an example, is not interacting with the land, as if it was squeezing the land, it is just there, standing, a gigantic clothespin in the middle of the city.

Bellow you will find some works of those guys that one day realized that a clothespin could pin not only clothes, but also your attention. Ha, what amazing word play...
