Botero Horse


This is a Botero sculpture at the Barcelona airport. His paintings and sculptures are noted for their exaggerated proportions and the corpulence of the figures. I was going through my archives and noticed the lady in red, the red suitcase and the shop ... Happy Ruby Tuesday!!

This is also part of my world as I get to see it everytime I am at the airport either picking someone up or going places... Click here for more shots of the world!!

  1. That reminds me of the Belgian farm horses ! My exposition was finished on Sunday evening. We had a lot of visitors, some paintings sold (not mine) but I got a lot of compliments for my flower decoration. Have you see them ?(on my photoblog) About the exposition I will post this week. I am very happy and satisfied with my new camera !!

  2. I don't think our Belgian farm horses look like this one :-) Nice sculpture!

  3. I like Bottero's horses better than his people. The paintings of women always seem too much like holding up a funhouse mirror and accentuating my own flaws.

  4. Thank you for the wonderful tour. This 2nd week of meme really makes us appreciate the many places that we don't usually see or ever had a chance to visit like the one you showed me in this post. Hope you get to have time to check my world too. Another great job and more to come in the coming weeks.

  8. That is a CHUNKY horse! Great sculpture! Isn't it funny how Ruby Tuesday made you take notice of the red stuff in the background? Bet you never would have noticed it otherwise... :)

  14. I love the art in airports. It is usually so indicative of something in the area, so it is quite interesting to me! (Like the red additions, too!)

  17. Nice one, it's great when one spots those red objects in a picture that's about something quite else:) Some years ago since I was in Barcelona, I don't remember this lovely statue or perhaps I didn't pay enough attention...

  27. I just wonder what kind of work that horse could be good at. Roadwork would probably be good.

  30. At first glance, I thought it's made from chocolate. I must be craving some for me to think that. Ha ha!

  31. Great! Can't say that I'm a Butero fan - but this one is actually more to my liking then most of what I've seen so far!
    Great post!
