Heinz Mack is an artist with a flair for making a statement. For the Venice Biennale Architecture Exhibition, Mack has put his 'Sky Over Nine Columns' on display, which consists of large, identical golden pillars.

The work is quite stunning, and with Venice as the backdrop to the work tourists are sure to flock to the site and the exhibition as a whole. Sky Over Nine Columns by Heinz Mack is meant to represent local craftsmanship, which Venice is known for. The pillars look like something from ancient Rome, jutting out into the skyline and commanding attention from passersby due to the golden color and large shape. Moreover, with the way each pillar is situated, the light shines off the columns creating an interesting shine at different hours of the day.
