Within the exhibition, one of the figures that stands out the most is the work “The Lovers #2” , an incredible sculpture ten meters high that personifies the union of two people through the purest act, which in the eyes of the author is neither more nor less than love; this work is made of stainless steel, cast aluminum and gold leaf; and it is already installed inside the enclosure.

Finally, on the third floor, you will find a garden in which there are various sculptures by Fischer.
