Bronze sculpture of a morene (sea-snake) with a boy sitting behind his head, standing in a the center of a fountain. The sculpture was intended to pay homage to the Canarian painter Néstor Martín-Fernández de la Torre.
But it is also told that the sculptor wanted to emulate in some way in the tourist city of Meloneras, the 'Girl with Dolphin', which is next to the Tower bridge of London, and others that appear in the big European cities and, that in turn mimic the 'Eros riding a dolphin'.
