Greeting visitors in one of the lobby entrances of the Wells Fargo Center is a brightly painted abstract sculpture by Joan Miro, "La Caresse d'un Oiseau." This 11' h painted bronze sculpture appears to be comprised of roughly three sections of forms that suggest organic parts, such as a head, a torso, and a main trunk. However organic these biomorphic forms appear, they also suggest a strong geometrical sensibility, giving the sculpture a sense of constructedness.
