The Big Giant Head
Wonderland is the actual name of the sculpture, but a 12 metre tall wire mesh head sculpture, what else could you call it other than the Big Giant Head. If you were ever a fan of the TV series Third Rock From The Sun, you can’t get the Big Giant Head out of your mind.
Wonderland, a work by the Spanish sculptor Jaume Plensa, was completed in January of this year. The sculpture is a 12 metre tall bent wire portrait of a young girl’s head, and is a key feature of the main plaza area of The Bow Building. There are two entrances on either side of the neck for people to walk inside the sculpture.
