An ode to a door ?

This suggestive sculpture is called "Puerta del Agua" (Water Door) and it was made by Raúl Valdivieso (1931-1992) using three blocks of rock. It definitely called my attention and I felt forced to show it to you...
You can see it during your next trip to Santiago in the "Parque de las Esculturas".

What a remarkable sculpture. I was thinking more like, river of life or something, birth, etc. It is a female torso, after all. :-)
