The Glass Labyrinth
If you are one of the people intrigued by works of art, then the Glass Labyrinth will blow off your mind.

As you visit Rio’s historic center, this great work of art will compel you to find your way through the glass maze.

The Clay Dome
A blend of imagination and creativity is the Clay Dome created by Andy Goldsworthy. The Clay Dome is an enormous, penetrable creation that provokes unusual sense of unfamiliarity, especially when observed from the exterior. The ephemerally created dome has a rounded shape and has unique intrigues.

The Giant Head
Do you want to stir your dreams? Then this giant sculpture made of marble dust and resin will be a spot for you. A Spanish sculptor, Juame Plensa, created the giant head and curving it took him up to four months.
