This striking tilted sculpture on Barceloneta beach is a homage to the neighbourhood of Barceloneta and named "L'Estel ferit" in Catalan, which translates to "The Wounded Star" in English.  The name in Spanish is "El lucero herido."  It was created by German artist Rebecca Horn for the 1992 Olympic Games in Barcelona and is lit up from inside at night.
