[Snapshots]: Artistic creations made from bricks, mortar & concrete in a hotel in Madhya Pradesh, India

About the snapshots

Today's snapshots highlight how artistic and innovative one can get and thereby create amazing features from mundane building materials like concrete, bricks & mortar, that not only attract one's attention, but also can liven-up the overall ambiance of the place-- be it the hotel's party grounds, or an office's otherwise boring recreation area, or a commercial/  amusement park, or even one's house's backyard lawn.

These snaps have been clicked in the party lawns of one of the modest hotel's (read 1 or 2-star hotel) located in the Katni - Maihar region in the state of Madhya Pradesh, India. Though the rooms and amenities available at the hotel were unfortunately found below standard, the hotel's party lawn presented a contrasting picture showcasing some artistically made features from concrete, bricks & mortar that surely made up for the money spent for the stay there.

One can take hint and can easily make or procure such creative produces out of the otherwise rugged building materials like concrete, bricks & mortar, wood, wrought iron and even can further decorate the features by using waste and junk material like broken crockery, earthenware, household disposed equipment, and what not! (As a quick reference, are you not aware of the ROCK GARDEN in Chandigarh, India that Mr. Nek Chand created from concrete and household waste material? If not, tell us and we'll cover it for our readers in coming times).  [REF: Nek Chand's Outsider Art: The Rock Garden of Chandigarh ].
