This 197-foot-tall (60 meters) sculpture by the artist Sebastián is located in Chimalhuacán, one of the peripheral neighborhoods known as part of Greater Mexico City’s Área Metropolitana. Sebastián, born Enrique Carbajal, has gained something of a reputation for abstract, public-funded works.
Chimalhuacán is officially located in the State of Mexico, and has a reputation as one of Mexico’s least developed areas. It’s home to the Bordo de Xochiaca, one of the capital’s largest landfills, and is an unlikely location for an abstract sculpture of this size, especially considering its cost of approximately MXN $30 million.
