The forest of Oma – a unique and philosophic installation in the open air! 6/9/2016 • Lynda Weappa
We bet this is one of the most unusual artistic installations you have ever seen!
At the beginning of 1980s Spanish artist Agustin Ibarrola decided to create an installation that would make it possible for people to see the close connection between Mother Nature and humans. As a result, he painted forest trees located in the Oma Valley in the natural Urdaibai reserve, Basque Country, Spain.
All the paintings resemble totemic images as if they were created by some ancient animalistic tribes. Interestingly, if you look at the paintings from different angles, you may see different pictures and geometric shapes. And while walking through the forest, you may even see moving images. That’s why the place is often called an animated forest.
Today, the valley of Oma is visited by hundreds of people. They wander about the forest and contemplate this original installation, which combines the pristine beauty of nature and human art.
