Barcelona Sculpture: David and Goliath

Barcelona Sculpture: David and Goliath

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 commissioned 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.

  5. >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.

    >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.
