The Soul of the Ebro (El alma del Ebro) was created by Jaume Plensa i Suñé
for the International Exposition in Zaragoza, the theme of which was “Water and Sustainable Development”. It is eleven meters high, the sculpted letters representing cells of the human body which is over 60% water. Its white letters and hollow structure invite the viewer to look inside and reflect on the relationship between human beings and water.
