Ovoid variant
Author: Jorge Oteiza
Year: 2002
Site: Bilbao Town Hall

Gods, men, beasts, but also geometric bodies unveil the preoccupations of an artist. As much as some citizens of Bilbao believe they are in the presence of a "txapela a medio lao", the sculpture by Jorge Oteiza is a large-scale reproduction of his analysis of emptiness: Ovoid variant of the idleness of the sphere, created in 1958.

Realized in pre-oxidised steel so as to resemble ships, with six metres diameter and almost eight in height, its 16 tons were located in front of Bilbao Town Hall in 2002.
