Head in the Clouds: Huge Painting of Reading Girl Appears on Alpine Ridge

MONTREUX, Switzerland An Alpine ridge that towers above the Swiss town of Montreux was the latest geographical feature to become a canvas for French land and street artist Saype.

The subject of this 6,000-square-meter (64,583-square-foot) artwork is a young girl studying an open book in her lap, from which two white flowers emerge and appear to dwarf a visitor sat down beside the piece.

This curious learner sits with her back to the Rocher-de-Naye ridge that looms above the banks of Lake Geneva.

To craft this large-scale work, entitled A Story of the Future, Saype used over 600 liters of biodegradable paint made from natural pigments, water and a milk protein.

It is part of the celebration of the 125th anniversary of the Gilon Rocher de Naye train line.

Saype is renowned for his massive works of art set in dramatic scenery as well as for smaller works taking inspiration from urban surroundings.
