Escultura El Equilibrista

Author

Maurice Monteros.

Characteristics

The sculpture inaugurated on February 2, 2006, is a structure made of steel, bronze and metal plate of 5 meters high, inspired by the people who do juggling in the streets, which shows a tightrope walker dressed in blue pants, harlequin shoes and stripy socks, riding a unicycle powered by a mechanical engine. The equilibrist is pedaling while at the same time is holding a balancing stick in his hands.

The mobile figure is inspired by an investigation about new trends on the circuses of the world carried out by French artist Maurice Monteros.
