The town of Playa Blanca has released a new sculpture dedicated to the seafaring tradition, with a figure modeled by the artist Cintia Machín and an old boat restored by the carpenter Luis Quintana. Last Sunday, the inauguration ceremony took place at the small roundabout in the center of town, a few meters from Playa Blanca beach which is an area closely linked to sailors who have allowed the development of this area. The artist unveiled the sculpture and spoke emotionally about her personal life experience and her talks with the fishermen, who helped her sculpt the tribute. It is there to highlight that the fishing industry is the means to survival for some thirty families of Playa Blanca. Tourists will be able to appreciate the origins of the town before it became a holiday resort.
