Photographer's Note

Sky Mirror, by the British (Mumbai-born) artist Anish Kapoor, is a concave mirror in polished stainless steel measuring 2.5 metres in diameter that 'makes the world turn upside down, giving the illusion of bringing the sky down to street level.' It stands in front of the Monte Carlo Casino, along the esplanade which is set in well manicured tree-lined gardens facing the building.

This sculpture was given to Monaco by Mrs. Lily Safra; a socialite and philanthropist who supports numerous foundations, organizations, and charities. The artist said, 'Lily saw Sky Mirror and decided to offer it as a gift to the Principality. Prince Albert was "brave" enough to exhibit it on the Place du Casino - such a symbolic setting of the Principality.'
