Description

Sculpture group of 30 individual sculptures (nowadays only 19 left) of children – boys and girls – all with a height of about 110 cm (3½ feet), made in terracotta. The children are looking into the sky and their faces represent copies of faces of local children, mostly from Morro Jable and from friends. The children are arranged in two groups, standing on the symbol of Yin and Yang (☯). One group is looking in the direction of the estern heaven (sunrise), the other in the direction of the sunset.

The sculptress explains her work like this: ""The children represent the starting point of human growth, in which each child starts his/her own way in order to evolve towards the highest in life, like plants go towards the light.

The work is complemented by the roundabout space as the oriental Yin Yang symbol which is the stage where all the human evolution takes place in his/her universe."
