Spanish artist Escif is back with a new monumental piece at Valencia Public Square. The project titles “This Too Shall Pass” started a year ago when they started building the big wood sculpture. A big 20 meters girl on meditation pose was installed on for the Falles, a traditional celebration held in the city.
“The big sculpture was built to be burned today, the 19th of March, as a ritual. But due of Coronavirus crisis, Fallas have been posponed and the big meditating sculpture didn’t arrive to its end. As reflex of this crazy situation, we´d decided to add a big surgical mask to the face of the sculpture. Suddenly this image became a symbol of peace and calm, unity and solidarity.” said Escif.
Check out more pictures of the sculpture below and stay tuned for more updates from Escif in the future.
