"Nature as Mother" by Adrián Reynoso is a curved abstract sculpture that represents nature, evolution and life. It is located on the Puerto Vallarta Malecon (Boardwalk) between The Good Fortune Unicorn (Unicorn of Good Fortune) to the north and The Roundabout of the Sea to the south.
Walking south along the malecón 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 just means he's from Guadalajara].
An abstract resin and bronze polymer sculpture on the Malecon, the promenade of downtown PV. Its curves depict a crashing wave with feminine human features on top of a spiralling snail shell.
It actually represents the evolutionary process on our planet and how it is controlled by nature. Others interpret it as a work that symbolizes the cycle of life and death.
The sculpture after a long cycle of its own has returned to the boardwalk, currently, it is in front of the Mandala nightclub on the corner of the Paseo Díaz Ordaz boardwalk and Abasolo street, the photo at the top of this page was taken at its current location on the Malecon in Puerto Vallarta.
It was unveiled on the malecón in 1997 on the corner of Josefa Ortiz de Domínguez. After the 2011 remodeling of the boardwalk, the sculpture was moved.
When it was moved to the Infonavit Neighborhood Main Square
On August 12, 2013, it was unveiled as part of the renewal of Plaza de la Colonia Infonavit (the main square of that neighborhood). This sculpture was an important part of the square until it was returned to the Boardwalk one block down from its prior location.
It is now on the corner of Abasolo street and the boardwalk in front of the Mandala Club. This was where the Triton and Mermaid sculpture was placed with the new Malecon (2011) and has now been moved back to the corner of Mina and Morelos street (despite Google Maps showing it there, I've informed them of the change) more or less where it was before 2011.
