In 1986, the sculptor Josep Maria Subirachs accepted the most risky and complex project of his entire career: the groups of sculptur es of the Sagrada Familia's Passion Façade. The sculptor, who had gained remarkable prestige with an impressive career, made it a co ndition that he would work with complete freedom, using his own personal style: out of respect for Gaudí, he did not want to disrupt his work nor try to imitate it. The angular shapes and expression of Subirachs figures on this façade emphasise the portrayal of Ch rist suffering and death, contrasting with the realism of the Nativity Façade, which is an expression of life.
