Serpentine Bench Detail at Park Guell, Barcelona, Spain

Serpentine Bench Detail at Park Guell, Barcelona, Spain [enlarge]

A detail of a serpentine bench at Park Guell, Barcelona. Not the first time I show you these modernist benches by Gaudi. Using the trencadis technique he composed curious patterns that not only included color tiles but several other pieces that look like bottle bottoms to me. If you enlarge the picture you will be able to see what I mean. For those of you who have not visited the park I should say that the undulated benches encircle a big terrace with a view over Barcelona and the sea.
