Photographer's Note

This is a piece of art at the home of artist Cesar Manrique on the island of Lanzarote. Manrique was a great environmentalist who worked with an enviroment rather than against it. It is due mainly to him that there are very few buildings over 3 stories on the island.

Everywhere you go on the island you will see sculptures and artworks designed by him. The buildings that he designed on the island are beautiful and very organic like Mirador del Rio and Jameos del Agua.

Well worth a visit at night is Lagomar. It is now a restaurant/bar/club but was designed by Manrique for the actor Omar Sharif in the 70's. legend has it that Sharif lost it in a card game while filming on the island and never returned.
