La Jibia (squid) is a large concrete sculpture, painted red and white, placed between one of the pools of the Martiánex complex and the sea.
The Costa Martiánez tourist complex was designed by César Manrique using elements of traditional Canarian architecture and endemic flora. Within the enclosure are six of his sculptures:
- César Manrique Cabrera (Arrecife, Lanzarote 1919 - Teguise, Lanzarote 1992),
Spanish-Canarian painter, sculptor and architect
