Photo of the day: A big red lipstick kiss from the Stravinsky fountain, Paris

In the 4th quarter of Paris, between the modern Centre Pompidou and the Saint Merri church, 16 remarkable sculptures move around and play with water; the Stravinsky Fountain. This controversial public fountain, created by the non-conformist artist Niki de saint Phalle with Jean Tinguely represents the Rite of Spring, one of Igor Stravinsky’s famous works as a composer. Characters from this ballet can be recognized in the fountain while the sound of water symbolizes the music. Funny contrast with the huge “Chuuuttt!! – Ssshhh!” street art painting in the background.
