The Sower

The sower figure is an allegory of the beginning of a booming agricultural region.

In 1941, Lucio Fontana and his colleague Osvaldo Palacios won a contest sponsored by the Rosario Merchants Association with a project of a sculptural relief called “The Sower”. The work was included in an embellishment project for Belgrano Ave., between San Juan St. and Carlos Pellegrini Ave., on an old railway tunnel mouth. With a total size of 26.57 x 28.87 ft and strong mouldings, it has an outstanding relief. There is a direct access from Urquiza Park through a staircase on the bank. It was officially inaugurated on July 20th, 1943.
