The Spaniards go in for street sculpture in a big way. Well, at least they did until the economy fell off a cliff. This is one of my favourites. You'll find it by the Grau (port) of Castellón de la Plana (Valencia Community). I can't help but wonder how the artist managed to get such life-like (and life-sized) figures. S/he can't have wrapped real kids in plaster of Paris to make moulds for the hot metal...? Can any artists out there explain? I'm really intrigued.
I've seen teenagers leap-frogging over the figure on the right. It's a shame it's a bit too high for a 7 or 8 year-old to attempt. Why didn't they put in another child waiting to be leapt over, so that the younger children could play as well?
