Street art, Parque das Nações, Lisbon


My wife and I came across this massive and colorful piece of art sitting on a pedestrian walkway.  We approached it from behind, and while it was clearly an animal, I was not exactly sure what it represented.

Turns out this sculpture represents an Iberian Lynx.  It has been made of recycled material and was crafted by Bordalo II, a young Portuguese artist known mostly for his high-quality graffiti.  The lynx stands 10 meters tall and was installed in 2019 in the Parque das Nações (Park of Nations, World Expo Park) neighborhood.

Not a bad use of garbage!
