Six metal animal heads, the work of Betka Siruckova, are positioned against a large open wall in the Beaux-Arts district of Montpellier.
On a sun-blessed autumn day, the shadows of this Carnival of Animals are well defined.
The interesting thing is that they are just as obvious on a shady day.
On closer investigation, it is clear that the shadows are deceptive – this is a clever piece of trompe l’oeil – more paint than shadow.
