Itzul El Andasolo

At Avenida Reforma

Art creation by Maestro Rojas, mostly made out of volcanic stone.

On the Plaza El Andasolo, Avenida Reforma and 16 Calle in Zone 10 of Guatemala City. The sculpture measures four meters high and five meters in length.

Itzul is a coati, inspired by one of the protagonists figure of La Mansion del Pajaro Serpiente literary work by the author Virgilio Rodriguez Macal .

The Andasolo impressed me as a child when read the book; Itzul, in essence, is solitary; is noble, does not harm, but does get harmed by others.
