Bronze sculpture of a man lifting a stone above his head.
Juegos tradicionales / Traditional Games
At the main roundabout of Cruce de Arinaga are four sculpture groups showing traditional games:
We did not check the sculptures for signatures, because the traffic was too heavy to cross over to the center of the roundabout.
- South: Levantamiento del Arado / Rising Plows, by Paco Suárez Díaz.
- East: Levantamiento de Piedras / Rising Stones, by Wency Herrera García.
- North: Juego del Palo / Game of Sticks, by José Luis Marrero.
- West: Lucha Canaria / Canarian Wrestling, by José Luis Marrero.
For information on the various games, see the artcile 'Deportes y juegos de Canarias' at Wikipedia.
- Francisco Ramón 'Paco' Suárez Díaz,
Spanish-Canarian sculptor from Agüimes, Gran Canaria
