Photographer's Note

Good Morning Everyone,

Near the entrance to the port in Barcelona, you will be amazed to see these huge, metal hoops dominating the plaza, I know we were!

The 42 metres high Onades sculpture is made up of seven stainless steel arches, weighs 15 tons and was erected in the Plaça del Carbó plaza in 2003. The undulating abstract, slender steel tubes evoke images of waves crashing and bubbling on Barcelona’s beaches.

It’s so large that 2 of the giant steel hoops actually cross over the roads leading to the World Trade Centre.

The Sculpture is by Andreu Alfaro. He was born in Valencia in 1929 and was entirely self taught. He first exhibited his work in the Sala Mateu in Valencia in 1957.
Many of his best known pieces can be seen in parks and plazas throughout Spain in cities such as Barcelona, Valencia and Madrid.- barcelonadownload.comm
