Description A delightful surprise - an illusion at the end of a path that lets your mind float
Caption The sculpture reflects the sky and at the same time has a faint grid that breaks the illusion that its really water, and, despite announcing to the viewer that it is not "real", you still look for the fish that you won't find under the surface that does not exist.
Note: The artist's name is often spelled Hadani
