This 72-foot (22-meter) statue stands in a park named after Joan Miró, its creator. The statue was a collaboration with Joan Gardy Artigas, who applied its colorful tiles. It’s one of three pieces commissioned by the city of Barcelona to welcome visitors.
“Dona i Ocell” (“Woman and Bird”) continues Miro’s theme of using women and birds. Its name has an additional meaning, too, as ocell is also a slang term for penis, and the statue has a rather phallic shape. There’s also a yonic gap down the side of the statue, which is outlined with dark tiles.
