Luis Torruella - Observatorio de la Imaginación

Luis Torruella – Observatorio de la Imaginación

Painted Aluminum

The Puerto Rican sculptor, Luis Torruella created his sculpture from aluminum sheets that were cut, welded, polished and finally patinaed.

There are two parts to the sculpture: The smaller segment is intended to be a seat that the viewer can use to observe the larger sculptural piece.  The viewer is then able to look through the telescope-like form at the top, and let his thoughts wander in this “observatory of the imagination.”
