A curved sculpture that represents nature, evolution, and life. Have you seen it back on the Malecon? It no longer stands there.
Going south you'll find Nature as Mother (Naturaleza Como Madre) by Adrián Reynoso [note: many places online you'll find his name as "Tapatío", but actually tapatío means he's from Guadalajara]. An abstract polymer-resin-bronze sculpture on the Malecon, curves depict a crashing wave with human features on top of a spiraling snail shell. It actually represents the evolutionary process on our planet and how it is controlled by nature.
(As of April 2012, this statue is no longer available on the Malecón. It is now located in the Main Plaza of the Colonia Infonavit)
