Chinese sculptor Hu Shaoming used steel components from everyday life: buttons, metal collars, handles, utensils and other random pieces to construct this incredible upside-down city entitled "Umbrella." There are around 2,000 separate buildings in the piece and each structure features its own architecture. "...Though Shaoming reflects on the loss of traditional Chinese culture as a whole. The parasol being a symbol of the past, the buildings grow further from it whith time."
