Parque Gell - banco de la plaza

El banco ondulante est formado por una sucesi鏮 de m鏚ulos c鏮cavos y convexos de 1,5 m, con un dise隳 ergon鏔ico adaptado al cuerpo humano. La base es de trencad疄 blanco, y se corona con una decoraci鏮 cer嫥ica que recuerda los collages dada疄tas o surrealistas, con motivos generalmente abstractos, pero tambi幯 algn elemento figurativo, como los signos del Zod燰co, estrellas, flores, peces, cangrejos, etc. El trencad疄 se construy con materiales de desecho, baldosas, botellas y trozos de vajilla. Predominan los colores azul, verde y amarillo, que para Gaud simbolizaban la Fe, la Esperanza y la Caridad; Jujol incluy tambi幯 rosas y frases aleg鏎icas en homenaje a la Virgen Mar燰, en catal嫕 y en lat璯.

Park Gell - park bench

The bench consists a waving succession, of concave and convex modules of 1.5 m, with an ergonomic design adapted to the human body. The base is "trencad疄" white, then topped with a ceramic decoration which recalls the Dadaist and Surrealist collages, generally abstract motifs, but also a figurative element, as the signs of the zodiac, stars, flowers, fish, crabs, etc. . The "trencad疄" was built with scrap materials, tiles, bottles and pieces of crockery. Dominated by blue, green and yellow, which symbolized for Gaud Faith, Hope and Charity; Jujol included also roses and allegorical phrases homage to the Virgin Mary, in Catalan and Latin.
