My Entry for this Week.


This striking sculpture certainly stamps its presence on Plaça de Catalunya.

It was created by Frederic Mares (1893-1991), a Spanish sculptor who studied and worked in Barcelona.  He specialised in monumental sculptures for public places; several of his works can be seen in and around Barcelona.

The woman in this particular sculpture supposedly symbolises Barcelona; she sits astride a strong horse and holds aloft a ship to represent  trade and exploration.
