Corinthian column

A Corinthian column created by street artist Escif, Barcelona, June 2019

I’m not entirely sure of the message of this mural, but it may be something along the lines of “big is beautiful”. Whatever the story, it did mean that I learned a new word of slang in Spanish. The work is titled Pilila, which I assumed was something Greek and architectural. Now, whilst some men may agree with that definition, its strict definition is a slang or childish word for penis, along the lines of willy.

  1. Actually, a Corinthian column is “distinguished by a decorative, bell-shaped capital with volutes, two rows of acanthus leaves and an elaborate cornice.” Your column has a plain capital — probably Doric. Of course that doesn’t matter to the really imaginative mural, even if it has a rather surprising name!
