22 Dec Algeria, Natural Rock Sculpture
The beauty of nature often takes my breath away. I look at its perfection, like in this natural rock sculpture in the middle of the Algerian desert, and get to think once more at how much inspiration can come from the nature surrounding us.
No wonders that so many artists have studied nature, no matter the scenery, analysing light, colors, shapes, shadows, and reproducing them in a work of art.
A ‘simple’ rock sculpture can tell so many things and evoke so many images. The truth, however, is that nothing is simple in nature, as it took thousands of years and the effect of wind, sand, erosion, and more, to create the beautiful rock sculpture I admire today. While I look at such beauty, I can’t help thinking at how easy and quick it is to destroy everything. Unfortunately, the human being destructive power is by far stronger than its creative talents. How much of all this natural beauty will be left in 100 years is a big question mark. Something we should all be thinking at.
