El Gato de Botero

This unusual monument is the work of Botero, a Colombian figurative artist and sculptor, whose work is characterized by the dramatic oversizing of his subjects. If you arrived at the airport you most likely saw his horse sculpture at Terminal 2. El gato, or the cat arrived in Barcelona in 1987, having stopped in many locations like Parc de la Ciutadella and the Olympic Stadium, before it found its permanent home here on the Raval.
