Miles Davis


It's been one of those weeks: computer problems, grey skies, son going back to university et al et al. I need a morale boost and what could be better than Miles Davis by Niki de St Phalle outside the Negresco?
A glass of good red wine inside the Negresco might come close though...

Oh now that's a great sculpture! Love it. I am laughing at his footwear though. Looks like green fuzzy slippers.-HA Maybe I could find some Miles Davis for the player on my blog. :)

He does have his comfort feet on. I love the history of this hotel and of course now I ma thinking of something else I want to see and do the Jazz festival.

That's a pretty cool sculpture. Reminds me that I haven't touched my jazz blogs in a while.

cette statue de Niki de St Phalle est vraiment magnifique, je trouve que c'est une des plus belles créations de St Phalle, et puis un bel hommage a un des dieux du Jazz.

My wife stood there for 5 minutes taking pictures when she spotted this sculpture during our visit last year.

Oh I love it! Such a happy, fantastic sculpture! And the hotel doesn't look too bad either. ;D

I hope the sun comes out for you this weekend!

I have some problems sometimes to leave comments with blogger. And today is that kind of day.
Great sculture! Is it exact that there are many others inside the hotel?
When we come in Nice, we hardly ever come in front of the Negresco, because it is a little out-centered.

Always trying to repair?
I was expecting your so blue Sky of Nice!
Great week end, Angela.

I like the statue, but ...isn't he too fat? Miles was so slim...
