Work of art on Gran Canaria beach

Published in Living in Gran Canaria, News

Sun, sea, sand and great beaches, it's enough to inspire anyone, and in Gran Canaria it regularly brings out the sand artists in the capital Las Palmas. The Las Canteras beach is the unique canvas for a series of ambitious sand sculptures, and the latest depicts a very modern view of The Last Supper. The work, La Ultiman Cena, features great leaders of the modern age such as Ghandi, Nelson Mandela, and Mother Theresa. The sculpture is 3 metres high and 16 metres long, and will be on display until April 12. Past works have celebrated religious events and scenes from history. Foto by Juanra-09 at Flickr.
