The statue was created in 1983 (there are those who say it was created prior to that) and is one of the largest, and last, statues by Joan Mirò. The artist himself was not at the unveiling ceremony, since he was very ill. He passed away less than a year after that. The statue was covered with the tiles by Mirò's colleague, the artist Joan Gardy Artigas.
The work itself deals with a few repeating topics from Mirò's works - women and birds. For its phallic shape, it can be understood that the statue symbolizes the male organ, and the round hole represents the female organ. Artists working with the motifs of sexuality was not new at the time. These such statues were created from prehistoric ages, and in primitive colonies from around the world.
The statue is located at the hear of the popular and picturesque park. Joan Mirò Park is divided into two separate sections: the bottom area with vegetation, where you can see eucalyptus trees, and pine and palm trees. In the higher area there is a man-made lake, where the statue is located in its full glory.
