Click to enlarge and see the details better!

In one of the shopping centres of Cairns( see post below), we found this colourful bench.A piece of art perhaps? The photo was taken by my Dutch daughter

RuneE of Visual Norway
began this informal meme on "Bench of the Week". Please visit his site for other participants. PERBS has a whole site dedicated to benches called "For the Love of Benches", which is going on for two years and every day she posts a new bench.Her friend Malyss. has shown more than 600 benches on a site called "benchesonmyway".

Beautiful ocean mosaic bench! One of a kind, I will bet! Simply divine and maybe the pretties one I have ever seen. Just gorgeous!

This must rank as one of the most original benches I have ever seen. The The tiled mosaic was exquisite.

PS I have been away fro some days, so no bench from me this week.

Très jolie mosaïque, oui, on peut parler d'oeuvre d'art !
Ceal fait penser à Gaudi, effectivement, mais aussi à Niki de saint-Phalle
