The emigrant leaving his home

Garachico statue


One thought on “The emigrant leaving his home

  1. From northwest Lanzarote to northwest Tenerife: a moving statue commemorating the many emigrants from their island in search of new lives. Garachico used to be a major port until the town was destroyed by a volcano eruption in 1706: the slopes behind are the remains of that lava flow. Notice this man has a hole where his heart should be – he is a picture of desperation at having to leave his home.
