Tresa and Lily: no (I might have led you to believe that the country was African, but I gathered the Med had a west side too...)

Rianne: yes to the first, no to the second (see below).

Jube: yes (Luckily Jube asked te right country question; so you can all concentrate on the country now; sorry about the possibly unclear north/south side of the med that we clearly interpret different; so thank you Jube! )

You're welcome. We have something similiar on one of the bridges between us and the town across the river but it's a different set-up to this one.

Is it in Barcelona?

Oh dear, I have to give up. I've spent ages admiring beautiful pictures of Barcelona without success. Is it time to let Dragonfan publish the answer, and move on???

I'll post it, Lily. I already said Dragonfan was the first (and only) one with the correct answer. Congratulations Dragonfan!

The metal art shown is by Andreu Alfaro and is titled "Ones", The sculpture can be found on Barcelona's harbour-front. The special thing is that it can form an infinite number of images depending on your viewpoint. It constantly changes when you are moving to it and away from it from/in different directions. simple but oh, so clever

See below what another flickr photographer saw:
