Lets´s say that a bit fatty human (and animal!) sculptures can be found at Botero Square in the city center of the Medellín city. Their author is internationally famous Colombian sculptor Fernando Botero, guy with pretty strict look and sweet round black glasses 🙂
When I came to Medellín, the first week I spent among other travelers in the youth hostel. That was the place I saw a Botero paintings for the first time without even knowing that image showing Pablo Escobar, head of one of the biggest drug cartel, trying to escape flying balls, is the work of Botero.
Then I visited city center and got to know Botero´s work a bit more and it was kind of funny discovery to see all the sculptures pretty fat. I thought: “what an idea That´s a recipe for fame!”
