Description

Sitting figure of granite on a frame of corten steel. The sculpture stands next to a much larger corten steel sculpture, of which we are not sure it belongs to El Poeta (since on the sculptor's website only the smaller frame with the figure is depicted, without the larger sculpture next to it). Made during the fourth Symposium in October 2017.

Simposio Internacional de Escultura de Pájara

In Morro Jable, municipality of Pájara, since 2014 a yearly International Sculpture Symposium is held, with the local sculptor Juan Miguel Cubras as one of the promoters. At these symposiums four or five sculptors work for a few weeks in a place open to the public. The sculptures made during the symposiums are placed in the public space of Morro Jable or else in the municipality of Pájara. Just as in Puerto del Rosario, there is no sculpture trail and there are hardly any information signs.
