When I saw these sculptures back in 2010, I totally fell in love with them! I think the sculptor, Xavier Corbero from Barcelona, really hit the right note, since they remind me just of… Lebanon. They feel like Baalbeck, the ruins of Beirut and Byblos. They feel like the old traditional houses that are spread all over Lebanon. So it always warms my heart when I see them. That’s why I also love to sit at Balthazar (here), just next to them, and have a coffee or breakfast, like I did with a cousin on Saturday. Of course I won’t mention here that it also plays an important role to know that Zara and the likes lie only one minute away! Also the famous Aishti (here), LV, Burberry, Chloé and Marc Jacobs. So, three major pleasures combined in one place: The Beirut Souks (here)!
