Land'Art by Saype Giant Fresco

Les Crosets

Pastille Activité incluse Multi Pass

Art and Nature come together beautifully in the alpine pastures near the Pointe de Mossettes....

>> [NEWS] Time has done its work, helped by the elements and the weather of these last few days. The artistic fresco is no longer visible as nature has resumed its rights, giving way to a virgin pasture. We hope you enjoyed this unique piece of art! <<

Saype is a pioneering artist and grasspainter, creating enormous, 100% biodegradable ephemeral masterpieces. His latest project, on the theme of Franco-Swiss friendship, is draped across the mountainside just a stone's throw from the famous Portes du Soleil pass between Switzerland and France.

Accessible on foot, by bike or via the Mossettes chairlift (departing from Les Crosets, and free with your the Multi Pass), this massive 2,500 square metre open-air fresco is best seen when the sun is high in the sky. Before 11:00 am, the shadows projected across the fresco mask its colors and considerably reduce visibility. From noon on however, the sun illuminates the textures and colours and reveals the project in all its unique splendour!

Light cloud cover is not a problem either. According to the artist, this only helps to accentuate the contrasts and adds an even more lifelike dimension to these two friendly 'contrabandiers'.
