  • CASTELLANO · "La Mano" de Fernando Botero: Fernando Botero, Colombian (b. 1932) - painter & sculptor. Often, it is said about Fernando Botero’s work - The Cat, The Bird, Smoking Woman, The Hand etc… - is that he creates fat representations. Fernando insists that he does not go towards the fat, but rather fills the space with ‘volume’. With that, ‘the sensuality of form’ is explored. His words, not mine. I still question the positioning of the middle finger in this piece (The Hand).
  • The statue is far from the other sights. It's Not worth the displacement.
