Pastor de Pau


The great fountains on Plaza de Catalunya. The statue is called Pastor de Pau, peace shepherd, or peaceful shepherd, a fine example of noucentisme sculptures, the spanish avant-garde. Made by a very interesting man called Pablo Gargallo, who spent a significant part of his life in the Montparnasse quarter of Paris, where he lived in 1903 in the artists commune Le Bateau Lavoir, with Max Jacob, Juan Gris, Pablo Picasso….
