Barcelona Sculpture: Figure Holding Frame at Ronda Litoral
Today I present you with another sculpture located in Plaça dels Voluntaris, a square at Ronda Litoral, the main artery that runs along Barcelona coast. Just in front of Torre Mapfre and Hotel Arts we come across this curious figure holding a frame and covered in brush strokes of vivid colors, behind, a long corridor of poles that once were festooned with the flags of all the countries participating in Barcelona Olympic Games. More than 35.000 volunteers took part in the event, thus the name of the square. Please, check the original picture, maybe you like it better. If you prefer more detail see the sculpture from a different angle.
