Newton and Dolmen was designed by Dalí, the same as the whole square. The dolmen is 13 metres tall and the cube shows the word GALA (his muse).

Very nice updated photos; why some of those statues in Madrid are temporary? I mean what happened, the reason which they change the position of some statues?

Some sculptures are just temporary expositions at the streets, like the cows (it was called the Cow parade, and I think it has been in some more cities of the World), or Rodin's sculptures, using the street as a museum.

Yes, Christos, it´s like Buho says. The statues of the hats inside Reina Sofía´s museum were temporary too. The bruchstroke is permanent.

Thanks for Don Quijote´s statue, buho.

These are the meninas, an homage to the famous picture by Velázquez.
