This week we’re talking monuments. The Torre del Caballito is a skyscraper in Mexico City. In front of the building stands the monumental sculpture Cabeza de Caballo (“horse’s head”) by designer Sebastian. I’ve always loved this statue, perhaps because it reminds me of one of the artist’s other works which was located just a few blocks from my old Mexican apartment. I think that growing up in a rainy climate means that I am especially appreciative of the beauty of a vivid, man-made color against a bright blue sky.
