Winged Fame Sculpture at Columbus Monument, Barcelona

Winged Fame Sculpture at Columbus Monument

One of the sculptures representing Pheme or Fame spreading her wings at the pedestal of the Columbus monument next to Las Ramblas in Barcelona. Conceived by Francesc Font and modeled by Rossend Nobas, the Fames surrounding the column create a wonderful silhouette against the sky.
