A Batman sitting, distracted with his cell phone, as if he were observing social networks, is at the foot of a building in Quito.
The sculpture of the fictional hero of Gotham City has arrived to be installed in the Iqon building, located in front of La Carolina Park and which is conceived as the tallest in the capital.
Joseph Schwarzkopf, one of the Uribe Schwarzkopf executives, revealed on Tuesday the sculpture that has been installed in the building’s plaza.

The installation is by the Ecuadorian artist Leonardo Hidalgo and has been called The World has Changed. He is a neo-pop artist with a great international career who fuses various plastic disciplines inspired by universal characters of real and fictional impact.
“Batman alleged caretaker of the Gotham City (Quito) is distracted with his smartphone on social networks” (sic), Schwarzkopf posted on his Twitter account.
In the promoter firm they indicated that the sculpture will not be temporary, but permanent in the Iqon.
The work is 2 meters high and weighs about 150 kg. It is made of polyester resin with fiberglass patinated with matte polyurethane. Its manufacture lasted about three months.

The Iqon is the first BIG project in Ecuador and in South America. This 32-story building, the tallest in the city, will have views that will allow you to enjoy sunsets over the Pichincha volcano.
Its concrete facade is formed by a cascade of stepped platforms. The building has made significant progress and aims to be completed this year. (YO)
