Station #5 of The Route of the Friendship
Pierre Székely (1923 - 2001) was born in Budapest, Hungary and lived in France. He studied design, modeling and woodcarving; however, his main interest was in monumental sculpture.
In The Biped Sun, reinforced concrete standing 13 meters high, the use of indefinite figures predominates. Its course finishing gives it a very organic characteristic
In Székely’s words,“Time passes by with nothing to be done about it. My sculptures are timeless signs of humanity whose only reason for existing is to give pleasure.”
Since a first attempt at restoration in 2000, Székely decided to change the terracotta color from ’68 to an intense yellow.
