Barcelona Sculpture: David and Goliath

Barcelona Sculpture: David and Goliath
© All Rights Reserved

Just in front of Hotel Arts and Torre Mapfre there is this funny sculpture called David and Goliath by Antoni Llena, Barcelona (1942). It is one of the 50 sculptures comissioned to several artists during the Olympic Games in 1992. Antoni Llena was already known because of his work with paper or plaster. As you can see, the face resembles a piece of cut-out paper, in fact it is an aluminum sheet standing on three metal tubes.

you seem to take such artistic photos - I like the angle on this one. I agree with Kris - it resembles a kite from this perspective.

>Yes, you both are right, Kris and Nicholas it resembles a kite. I was not aware of that, in spite of being so obvious.
>Thanks Emilio, I see that you had a great time in Barcelona, that makes me happy.
>Goliath it is according to what I read, but I don´t have the slightest idea where David is, maybe is the one who watches.

Barcelona's a beautiful place (great football team too) and I think your shots captures the essence of the city.

>Thanks Imran for your inspiration.
>Thanks Natalie I appreciate that.
>Thanks seesaw, yes I guess it is strange enough to call my attention. I had my wife sitting on a bench to patiently wait for me to shoot from different angles.
