The statue of the head was the first work of art by Lichtenstein that was created with ceramic tiles, as a dedication to Antoni Gaudi, and to his technique of such broken tiles. Until the end of the 1970's, Lichtenstein focused mostly on multi-dimensional pop art, mainly on large fabrics. Next to the typical figures and comic storylines, he used daring colors, dark and thick lines, thought bubbles, sound effects and dots to create shade.
The height of the statue is 64 meters. It stands tall on the beach at the heart of the city. The statue of the head is made of cement and ceramics. Even though the statue is simplified, it is easy to relate the statue to the head of a woman. The eyes look like long blue and black brush strikes
