Photographer's Note

Yes, this artistic object is hard to avoid once at the beach, walking along the sandy shore. When I stood underneath, I had a real feeling like a fish in the net.

============================================

This fishnet sculpture was designed and built by an American artist, Janet Echelman, in 2005. It is a tribute to Matosinhos, the land of the fishermen, located just 8km north of Porto. Held by three metal posts, this giant net with a diameter of 42m, swings in the wind, mimicking the movements of anemones. It is, therefore, a sculpture under constant mutation; and for that reason, it was given the name She moves. Nonetheless, we dearly nicknamed it Anémona, the Portuguese word for the anemone.
