Urban Menhirs

'Calçada portuguesa' are traditional Portuguese cobblestones used for pavements, squares, memorials in Portugal, Azores, Brazil and other countries. These cobblestones are the basic element of the most beautiful forms of urban street art. When walking down the streets of Lisbon and the Azores, I saw many loose cobblestones. I shifted them a bit, piled them up, to create my own  urban art structures: calçada monuments, like small megaliths, urban menhirs.
