"Hello tinytoadstool" is an art project created and organized by fabulous Shan Shan that creates very original and gorgeous stuff, among them very beautiful felt berets.
Her art project named “hello, tinytoadstool" is conceived in way that the beret travels the world. It was firstly sent from Japan to Greece back in March this year.
The tinytoadstool beret is sent to a person, and after taking 3 photos, the person sends the beret to the next person……
The photos should be:
- first one is a self portfolio from the waist up with tinytoadstool beret on head.
- second one is a self portfolio in front of the symbol of it's country or town with the tinytoadstool beret on head.
- third one is conditions free
Two pics I've chosen including some sort of symbols of Belgrade are taken within one of the largest and most beautiful parks in Belgrade, Kalemegdan park.
So the monuments are:
Victor statue-"This statue, holding a dove of peace on one hand and a sword of war in the other hand, and looking forward across the confluence of the Sava and the Danube, and over the vast Pannonian plain, towards the very distant Fruška Gora mountain, towards at the time, Austro-Hungarian empire, is probably the most powerful, most popular visual symbol of Belgrade"
Nebojsa tower and view to the Danube river-" Nebojsa Tower was used as Turkish prison. It was Donjon at the time of Serbian kings. Famous Greek revolutionary and poet Rigas Feraios was killed here by Turks. Tower is build as a water tower.
It was set in waterline of Danube (in time of its construction river has some different course). It was connected via huge chain with U shaped tower (that only remains left) and thus closed little "hidden" port.
Tower itself changed its image very much from original - last floor is changed, tower lost crenelation and matriculation (terraces with holes in floor for defending purpose) and new tower get new openings in each floor for artillery use."
So here you could see some of my pics, for all the info and pics of the project, please read and see more at Shan Shan blog and I will be uploading some more pics with beret over HERE.
