Street Art in Barcelona: Lying Head

Street Art in Barcelona: Lying Head

Barcelona Photoblog continues with Igor Mitoraj sculptures series. This time, a huge hollow head in the middle of Rambla Catalunya, like some long forgotten totem left behind by an unknown ancient civilization. I close my eyes and I imagine myself diving in a lost world, maybe Atlantis, and seeing the bottom littered with hundreds of these and perhaps part of the 500,000 coins found by US Odyssey submarine who recently claimed to have discovered one of the biggest hoards in a wreckage ever.

Yes I heard that story, Carlos, sends your imagination flying, doesn't it ?

I LOVE THIS STATUE AND THE WAY YOU PHOTOGRAPHED IT.

I can't quite get into this one; it seems a trifle too macabre for me.

Neat idea. I like your picture of it too. It reminds me of the sculptures on the streets of Dayton, Ohio now. Showing all kinds of people, including Marilyn Monroe, in different poses. They look absolutely real and lifelike but are all bronze.

Thanks my friends. I reckon they are somewhat maccabre Kate and that's precisely what I like. Wait till you see the rest! :)
Abraham I would like to see those sculptures.
