Bogotá, Colombia

mona lisa boteroIt rained our first day here, so MJ and I did mostly indoor stuff like museums, but also found my bank’s ATM, and booked some later excursions.

 

Here are some images from the collection of works by Fernando Botero, Colombia’s most famous artist. You’ve likely seen his chubby sculptures or paintings, which show up in places all around the world.

Adam and Eve Botero

 

 

 

The figures at right are the smaller prototypes for the figures of Adam and Eve in the Time Warner Center lobby in New York.

Browsing through the gallery was a little like looking at a photo album from one of my family reunions. Well, except for the nudity.
