With Water, these Bronze Statues Come to Life

 In cities around the world, you will often see human statues as part of fountains, with the water coming out from a container they are holding, or something like that. Furthermore, we have all seen the famous 'little peeing boy' fountains, which, although are charming, are nothing new. Well, Polish sculptor, Małgorzata Chodakowska has created a series of breathtaking sculptures which are complemented by water. The results of this conception are original and stunning. It's not just the marvelous craftsmanship involved in their creation that will seize you. When the water begins to flow, you will really be spellbound.

But my favorite series of statues are called “Primavera”, which turn the depicted women’s hair longer thanks to marvelous streams of water.
