Information Sign

From the Mareseum information sign:

La escultura está compuesta por siete piedras de basalto que simbolizan cada una de las islas principales del Archipiélago Canario. Las piedras están comunicadas por elementos que a modo de remos nacen de una gran nave suspendida en el aire. Un barco cuyas velas tienen forma de un reloj de arena similar a las montañas volcánicas, un medidor de tiempo que nos remonta al origen mismo del Archipiélago.

This sculpture consists of seven basalt stones that represent each one of the Canary lslands. The stones are joined by elements emulating oars that emerge from a great vessel suspended in the air. The sails are in the shape of an hourglass similar to the volcanic mountains: a timing device that takes us back to the very origin of the archipelago.

Die Skulptur besteht aus sieben Basaltsteinen, die für die Hauptinseln des Kanarischen Archipels stehen. Die Steine sind mit Elementen verbunden, die wie Ruder aus einem großen, in der Luft schwebenden Schiff entspringen. Ein Schiff, dessen Segel die Form einer Sanduhr aufweisen und an Vulkanberge erinnern – ein Zeitmesser, der auf den Ursprung des Archipels zurückgeht.

Tarajalejo - Islas Canarias


'Mareseum' is an open-air museum that includes five pieces of art by by artists of different nationalities and based on the same topic: the sea and everything that belongs in it and is inspired by it.
These artworks were made in November 2017, at the 1st International Sculptors Meeting in Tarajalejo, FÔRMAR 2017, and they stretch along the village's promenade, creating a unique museum that invites you to discover and interpreting the artworks.

The five sculptures are:

  1. Pescador de Sueños, by Juan Miguel Cubas (Fuerteventura),
  2. Seahorse, by Antonina Fatkhullina (Russia),
  3. Ventana al infinito, by Ana Mamulashvili (Georgia) (abstract, included here to be complete),
  4. Ladrón de perlas IV, by Amancio González (Spain),
  5. Islas Canarias, by Jhon Gogaberishvili (Georgia),
