Description

Surrealist sculpture, with the head and arm of the surrealist painter Óscar Dominguez. The sculptor, Medín Martín, explains that "the sculpture is a mixture of a head interwoven with the essence of the work of Óscar Dominguez, where elements of his compositions chosen at random complete the whole; the dragon tree that emerges from the volcanic rock, the prow of fishing and sailors' boats from the coast, mutilated members of the human body that in a surrealistic way are transformed into basalt columns that end up rolled up like butterfly tongues to culminate with a fragment of arm and hand that holds the creative head that always has Tacoronte as a reference and source of inspiration".
