Artist's Description

I can’t figure out Barcelona without Gaudi and Gaudi without Park Güell, magic pearl of Barcelona…

Park Güell is a garden complex with architectural elements situated on the hill of el Carmel in the Gràcia district of Barcelona. It was designed by Antoni Gaudí and built in the years 1900 to 1914. The park was originally part of a commercially unsuccessful housing site, the idea of Count Eusebi Güell, whom the park was named after. It was inspired by the English garden city movement.

Park Güell is skillfully designed and composed to bring the peace and calm that every person would expect from a park. The buildings flanking the entrance, though very original and remarkable with fantastically shaped roofs with unusual pinnacles, fit in well with the use of the park as pleasure gardens and seem relatively inconspicuous in the landscape when one considers the flamboyance of other buildings designed by Gaudí.
The focal point of the park is the main terrace, surrounded by a long bench in the form of a sea serpent. To design the curvature of the bench surface Gaudí used the shape of buttocks left by a naked workman sitting in wet clay. The curves of the serpent bench form a number of enclaves, creating a more social atmosphere.

Gaudí incorporated many motifs of Catalan nationalism, and elements from religious mysticism and ancient poetry, into the Park. Like in his later creation, Casa Batllo, his main idea was the fighting between Good and Evil, you can see the big cross over the Porters House, representing the sword of Saint George (patron saint of Catalonia).

So… enter into the Park Güell, go up to terrace and look at beautiful Barcelona. Do it like me… through dragon eye…
