Fernando Botero

Fernando Botero is a famous Colombian artist and was born in 1932. He is known by his paintings and sculptures of slightly obese figures (mostly people and animals).
This sculpture, called "Caballo" (Horse) was donated by the artist to Santiago and is located in front of the Museum of Contemporary Art.

Yes, he is very popular and I reallly like his work.
I've always thought that his obese people are thoughts-provoking.
