  • The real name of the sculpture is meditation! It's a small wonder that goes 'almost' unnoticed for many of pedestrians passing by one of the busiest streets of the city. Sculpted by Josep Granyer, shows his particular point of view of penalties and the human dignity through his work. The project was commissioned by Amics de la Rambla (a neighbourhood Association) to avoid to open the street to vehicular traffic of vehicles. They didn't want to lose the central paseo de la Rambla.

  • This sculpture as well as others scattered along the rambla were created in protest mode to make the street as pedestrian and not automotive ring. Well managed by neighbors to the author of the work Josep Granyer performed this inspired by Rodin's thinker and flirtatious giraffe.
