Lizard Print Park Güell, BARCELONA


Art print from the Barcelona Series. Lizard of Park Güell

This is the third fountain on the Park's staircase. The lizard, dragon or salamander, is made of rasilla brick covered with colored trencadís, it is 2.4 m long. There are different versions of its meaning: it may represent the alchemical salamander, which symbolizes the element of fire; the mythological Python from the temple of Delphi; or the crocodile that appears on the coat of arms of the city of Nîmes, where Güell grew up.

This figure has become the emblem of the garden and one of Barcelona. A replica of this figure has been in the Museum of Contemporary Art in Madrid since 1969. Above this figure there is a small tripod-shaped construction, alluding to the one used by the fortune teller of Delphi.
