No Horsing Around

This sculpture is from Colombian artist Fernando Botero. It is placed at the Macroplaza, right in front of the  State Government Offices.

Botero is known for his fat subjects, although he states that he doesn't make them fat but exaggerates their muscles to make them more appealing to the viewer.  Is it really? What do you think?

Botero es conocido por sus sujetos gordos, aunque el dice que no los hace gordos sino que exagera su musculatura para hacerlos más agradables al espectador. ¿Será? ¿Qué opinas?
