Things That Make You Go YAYYYYYYY!!!

Las Pescando Sillas (The Fishing Chairs)
are coming back! 
Good news for the people of Jocotepec!

The Presidente has commisioned the same artists
to recreate their sculptures, bigger and better,
in the same location on the malecón.

Artist apprentice, José, prepares the wire frame
and plaster that will hold the little tiles.

 Julio Martinez, famous for his Tlaquepaque
murals and sculptures, oversees the project.
Julio says he is second-in-command to
Camilo Ramirez who headed up the original project.

We're so happy they're back to do it again!

  1. Interesting, was there a public demand to replace them, or was it a planned upgrade?

  2. I'm happy too!With the sculptures, the Malacon is a beautiful landmark!
