alien coffee bean

Sculpture at the Piazza IX Aprile in Taormina, Sicily. It was sculpted out of polished black stone, possibly a type of marble. No idea what it is meant to be or represent, but to me it looks like an alienesque coffee bean. But then again, I have a slight coffee obsession.

    1. Thanks. I think so. The entire sculpture was jet black, but the inside of split was coloured orange/yellow (not obvious from the black and white image). I tried googling it, but I couldn’t find any info about the sculpture (at least on English-language sites and my Italian is pretty basic).

    1. Thanks!!! I was awarded the Liebster Award in December, but I still haven’t gotten round to posting my nominees (I was finding quite difficult to choose just 5 and not sure how to find out whether they have under 200 followers, then I forgot about it). I’ll have to do a post over the weekend for these two awards.

      1. No probs Stevie! Well-deseved 🙂 I always enjoy your photographs and stories. I know what you mean about the Liebster Award – I don’t think you can be sure if they have less than 200 – I just chose people who haven’t been ‘up and running’ too long. I don’t think it matters too much – all about giving those you value some credit and a boost of traffic really 🙂 You could always make your own rules by acknowledging both awards but just do one bigger list of nominees Kreativ Blogger or something like that instead? It did take me ages choosing people though!! So many great fellow bloggers out there! Congrats again 🙂
