  1. Interesting piece of art which I have not seen when visiting Barcelona some years ago. For me being a secular person, I really appreciate the more abstract and imaginary perspective. Thanks for sharing this.

    • We kind of stumbled over it. We were visiting the Montjuic castle area on the edge of Barcelona without a guide, and hidden in the main courtyard in one of the many rooms under the many arches is this intriguing piece. It wasn’t identified at all, but I managed to find it through a Google search, and then found out the name of the artist, Carles Berga. Berga has a webpage, and on it is the YouTube video you see above which shows how the piece was constructed.

    • My spatial visualization has always been awful. I had no idea what the sculpture actually looked like until I saw the video–even though I saw it in person!
