The statue of Shakira in the singer’s hometown of Barranquilla, Colombia bears little resemblance to the pop star.
It was built with Colombian iron. German artist Dieter Patt had the iron shipped to Germany after coming up with the idea in early 2005. Patt, a Shakira super fan if there ever was one, supports many charity projects in Colombia, including the singer’s Pies Descalzos (Barefoot) Foundation.
