Vientos del Sur
In April of 2006, I was chosen by the city of Puntarenas in Costa Rica to create this large 8 ton piece.
In Puntarenas, the wind would come up the beach where I was carving just after noon, cooling down the work site. The sculpture titled Vientos del Sur, or South wind, was created to honour this important wind that affects the local fishing community and cools the village of Puntarenas.
It has been permanently sited along the seawall walk in the village.
