Located in the Plaza de las Naciones Unidas in Buenos Aires, the Floralis Generica is a 75 foot high steel and aluminium sculpture of a flower by Eduardo Catalano. Situated in the center of a park, the sculpture has an electrical mechanism that opens the petals every morning at 8am and closes them at sunset. While the petals are closed, it a red glow radiates from within the flower which the artist has said illustrates its "wait to be reborn the following morning."
