I was planning a post with the title “Miró, Miró on the Wall”  to show some of the fabulous tapestries and wall-hangings we saw at the  Fundació Joan Miró  last year in Barcelona.

But since this is an  OddBall post, I’ve chosen these instead.

After a good look around the spacious museum/gallery we went up on the roof where we found these delights.

I think my favourite is the lady with red legs and a tap on her head.

Because of her headgear and her pose, I like to call her The Tap-Dancer.  Her “official” name is Jeune Fille s’Évadant which translates as Girl Escaping .

(I dont suppose Tap-dancer would be a pun in translation)

Anyone have any ideas for a name for this one ?……….

If we go back there again on our next trip to Barcelona I must find out all their proper names.

***STOP PRESS*** Thank you Charles at charleswaugh.com for a name for the second picture. Charles suggests Clown with a Heart. I like it!
