The Espacio Bronzo Art Gallery presents the display "Laurisilva", with works by Tenerife sculptor Fernando Mena. It will remain open until 4 May, Mondays to Fridays, from 11:00 to 13:00 and 17:00 to 20:00, and Saturdays from 11:00 to 13:00.

The exhibition presents a series of works in stone, constituting Mena's unique homage to the mountains of the Canary Islands and the water that is capable of retaining the trade winds. The collection consists of seven pieces modelled on leaf shapes carved into Canarian basalt with a highly refined technique that makes use of both formal simplicity and poetic force. With a tremendous knowledge of its mineral structure and families, Fernando Mena Ramón is one of the foremost experts on stone in the Canary Islands. He is also a master of removing it from the ground at the quarry with the strike of a chisel, listening with a careful ear to the notes of each hit.
