A humorous and satirical gesture, accompanied by a sign that mimics the cultural heritage sign that the municipality of Beirut uses for the preservation of the city's landmarks...“An infinity pool is a reflecting or swimming pool where the water flows over one or more edges, producing a visual effect of water with no boundary. Such pools are often designed such that the edge appears to merge with a larger body of water such as the ocean, or with the sky. They are often seen at resorts, estates, and in other luxurious places.” (Source: Wikipedia)
