Imaginative and creative sculptures, contemporary artworks, craftmanship and architecture we encountered and fancied during our road trips through Europe.

A sculpture is a three-dimensional work of art. It can be made of stone, metal, clay, or other materials. 

A statue is an artwork that depicts a person or an animal or part of a person or animal. The terms sculpture and statue are often used interchangeably.

He is facing towards the train station, which he proclaimed the centre of the universe, his arms open wide, welcoming visitors to Perpignan in France. It is situated on the Place de Catalogne and was put in place in 2017 but originally created in 2000 by the two artists Sabine et Eric, known as ‘Les Pritchards.’ It was inspired by Dali’s 1965 painting, Le mystique de la gare de Perpignan, and was originally placed on the roof of the station.
