A giant sculpture in the shape of a human head was unveiled on Tuesday in the water of Botafogo Beach in Rio de Janeiro. It's the latest work from Spanish artist Jaume Piensa and it is part of the "Other Ideas for Rio" exhibition, officially opening on September 7th. The exhibition will feature other international artists at some of the city's main landmarks. The aim is to bring art to people who wouldn't otherwise get to see it because of the rush of city life.
