Second series of the exbihits of 2006 Shanghai International Mosaiculture

1, Cowboy Style (Reading, USA)
"Nothing conjures up the rough-and-tumble history and fierce independence of the American West like the image of a cowboy on his horse. The exhibit celebrates steer wrestling, a wilder event that tests a cowboy's strength, speed and timing. Reading salutes the legacy of the cowboy with a popular annual rodeo drawing competitors from America and Canada." -----commentary

2, Montreal on Stage (Montreal Quebec , Canada)
"The exhibit represents the urban landscape of Montreal silhouetted against Mount Royal with a huge maple tree on top. The crowds celebrating the traditional Jazz Festival, the Francofolies, the Circus of the sun, the Film Festival and the Laughter Festival, is an impressive dsiplay of the hospitality of the Montreal people to friends from home and abroad. "------commentary

"The symbol of Genoa, the Lanterna was built in 1543. Being a 77-metre-high tower, it is made of two blocks roughly of the same height, and both with a projecting terrace. The Lanterna, standing firmly at the harbor, has served as an unfailing guardian and has welcomed vessels and boats for centuries."------commentary
