Metal Flower Sculpture, Buenos Aires MG_0474

In many Buenos Aires public parks, one finds an array of sculptures and monuments.  This metallic flower is the most prominent feature sitting in a pool and blooming towards the sky each day.  Generated by hydraulic power, it opens when the sun goes up and closes at night. It takes about 20 minutes to open as well as to close.
