Open Shop Project: Doily installation by Artyarn

I have come across these images a couple of times now and every time they catch my attention. Since the emergence of yarn bombings there have been a plethora of similar installations images bouncing around the world-wide web but what strikes me about this piece is its simplicity. A single concrete globe transformed and beautified in a stark, cold, and rather masculine looking public space. Well done Artyarn!
