Upside-Down Metropolis by Hu Shaoming

Chinese sculptor Hu Shaoming has constructed a model of an upside-down metropolis, consisting of over 2,000 buildings beneath the canopy of a parasol, known as 'Umbrella'.

The umbrella represents traditional Chinese culture which was the foundation of the urbanization, but with the passage of time, the buildings rise further away from that foundation.

The sculpture reflects a booming urban landscape. He used cold steel parts like buttons, metal collars, handles, utensils, and other random bits of metal, to reflect the urbanization of China.

He also created a beautiful sculpture called 'City of Dreams' where a city is emerging from the head of a massive seahorse beneath the water.
