Wings of Mexico
Where: Burj Plaza, Downtown Dubai
When: From November 4, 2018
Wings of Mexico is a sculpture that shows the possibilities of human creation and interaction. Standing for the desire of the body to fly, it represents the capability of flying with our mind, going beyond one’s physical capabilities and inviting us to transcend our own limits: a way to escape our physical boundaries. Since 2015 this piece has been displayed in Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Singapore, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Berlin, Los Angeles, Quebec and Mexico City.
The Wings of Mexico have captivated hundreds of people around the world, making of their original location one of the most photographed spots in Mexico City.
