Apparently, this sculpture open and closes with sunrise and sunset. It is currently being fixed, but worth seeing anyway.

I first noticed this sculpture when our City Tour Bus passed by along its location. When the "Yellow LIne" of our City Tour Bus ended, we waited for its "Blue Line" bus right in front of this attraction. I therefore had more time to see and watch it. As most reviewers had written, it is broken thus the petals do... More

Too bad it is no longer operational. The guide said they are reworking the flower so that it once again opens a dawn and closes at Dusk.

Of course it depends on one's taste whether you like the sculpture or not. But it is worth seeing - one can easily reach it during a trip with the hop-off-hop-on-bus. The sculpture is located in a big park and you can have a nice rest there. And it is not far from several other interesting places. Do not miss!

FG is a nice sculpture in a good location. Unfortunately the mechanism that makes it open and close its petals during the day was broken when we visited it. Still a great photo opportunity within walking distance from Recoleta Cemetery.

I am told that it used to open and close, but as a free standing giant sculpture, it is still beautiful. It is not far from the Recoletta Cemetery, nor far from museums. It is worth a stop -- lots of beautiful public art here.

Saw this in daytime, so no flower opening or closing or light show. Flower has boarding and props against it, so photos spoiled. Was very disappointed that metal was not very reflective or clean. Surrounding park was scruffy and had no facilities. That said, we were glad to have seen the sculpture as it features in many international pictures of... More

Easy to find on any general city map - within walking distance from Recoleta Cemetery. The only gate entrance is on the sthn cnr near the Faculty building . Wide open space and if you place your camera through the fence grille you can still get a good picture. The sculpture itself is out of action due to vandalism but... More

If you look at the flower during the sunset you will be able to see how the flower will close slowly till it will be completely closed!!
