Description

Bronze sculpture of a man lifting a plow on a long pole.

Juegos tradicionales / Traditional Games

At the main roundabout of Cruce de Arinaga are four sculpture groups showing traditional games:
  1. South: Levantamiento del Arado / Rising Plows, by Paco Suárez Díaz.
  2. East: Levantamiento de Piedras / Rising Stones, by Wency Herrera García.
  3. North: Juego del Palo / Game of Sticks, by José Luis Marrero.
  4. West: Lucha Canaria / Canarian Wrestling, by José Luis Marrero.
We did not check the sculptures for signatures, because the traffic was too heavy to cross over to the center of the roundabout.
For information on the various games, see the artcile 'Deportes y juegos de Canarias' at Wikipedia.
