Station #11 of the Route of the Friendship
Subirachs was born in Barcelona and studied at the Superior School of Fine Arts. He did his first exhibition in 1948 and later presented his works in Brussels, Bruges and others countries in the word
He has done important pieces of work in contemporary religious sculpture in Spain, including completing works on the Sagrada Familia by Gaudí in Barcelona.
Mexico was created a couple of months after the rest of the sculptures since the invitation to the project took longer. It stands 10.5 meters high.
This work of art suggestively displays the word “México” on its central horizontal mass where a first lower mass or base, and a second higher one positively and negatively converge, forming a sort of cross.
