There are plenty of options that came to my mind for this week's photohunt theme and it took me a while to decide what pictures to post. After much thought, I thought I'd share with you a couple of photos that I took on our trip to Salzburg last year.
This is a unique sculpture of Sphaera, which depicts a man standing on a large golden sphere at Chapter Square with the Hohensalzburg Fortress towering above it in the background.
When I first spotted this statue, I thought it was a real man standing on the golden sphere. He was so lifelike, that I had to take a closer look to convince myself that he was not real. This artwork project created by Stephan Balkenhol is known to be associated to the Mozart balls that are sold all over the city. Now don't start getting dirty images in your mind as what I'm referring to is chocolate balls. It's a great sales gimmick, but the sweet delicacies are simply irresistible.
I bought a selection of interesting fillings and those with novel combination from this store. A couple of cardboard cutouts of Mozart standing can be seen in front of the store as a tribute of what a great composer he was. And it seems like the sales person couldn't resist being a part of the photo op too. :)
