The original art is by Constantin Brancusi (1876-1957) called Endless Column. We used his work as a springboard for a geometry lesson. Don't you just think it's lovely? So lovely, that I volunteered to take my groups' piece home and display it proudly on the mantle.
Don't think it will last that long (hence the tape you see holding it together in the picture) but for now I am admiring our art and reminded of the two weeks I gave up of summer all in the name of math and science. Ahh.... now summer begins!
