Long Description:
Esfinge (Sphinx) is one of 23 sculptures in Plaza Botero donated by Medellin artist Fernando Botero for the renovation of the Museum of Antioquia. Botero’s signature style, also known as "Boterismo", depicts people and figures in large, exaggerated volume, which can represent political criticism or humor, depending on the piece. He is considered the most recognized and quoted living artist from Latin America.

The sculpture can be seen in Google Street View.
