Artist Pedro Reyes is delighted that “Stargazer (Citlali),” the 16-foot-tall sculpture he carved by hand from volcanic rock for the River Walk, already is becoming a popular spot for art lovers and selfie-seekers.

“That’s what you aim for, for people to take ownership of it, for it to become a place where people go and have a picture and also to enrich the city,” said Reyes, who is based in Mexico City.

The eye-catching stylized sculpture, which was commissioned as part of the city’s Tricentennial celebration in 2018, is situated on a 5-foot base. It depicts a woman sitting, with one leg casually crossed beneath the other, gazing up at a tiny marble star she holds in her hand. It can be found at the fork in the San Antonio River between the Shops at Rivercenter and the Convention Center.
