Montjuic: Woman and Dome

Montjuic: Woman and Dome: Click to resize
© All Rights Reserved

This sculpture was unveiled during the Olympic Games of Barcelona 1992. Located near the entrance of MNAC (National Art Museum of Catalonia) in the Palau de la Mercè whose main dome you can see in the background, the woman seems to be the same size as the building. I wanted to confront sculpture and architecture in the same picture,two secular expressions of human creativity that always go hand in hand.

The sculpture is great. The building as well. Combining the two was a good idea.

>Denton, your opinion is something I appreciate much. I lose a lot of time choosing my pictures, and knowing you people like it, pays for all the effort.
>Thanks Nicola, I thought not many people would comment on tint. I am glad you make emphasis on that as it was one of the hardest things to choose.

>Lisi: Yes the truth is that a sculpture is just a sculpture. So a good angle and message changes the story a bit. Thanks you.

I agree with all the comments. The choices of angle, frame and colour adds to the story that played in my mind when I looked at it.

...she looks over tha balcony, saddened by the view as her lover rides away into the distance...
