5 colourful and whimsical things to see or do in Paris this year


The Stravinsky Fountain (Fontaine Stravinsky) - Rue Brisemiche, Paris, France

The Stravinsky Fountain is dedicated to Igor Stravinsky and his emotional and often strange music. The colourful sculptures are the work of Jean Tinguely, a sculptor, and Niki de Saint Phalle, a painter. The sculpture has been done in a Dadaist style and features black, machine-like structures. Meanwhile Saint Phalle’s painting work is bright and primitive. The whole collection makes for a fountain which is at the same time disorderly and whimsical.
