Additional information

Dimensions 25 × 6 × 9 in

“La Maja Del Mar” (2016) is one of the more sensual pieces crafted by Jorge Blanco. Roughly translated as “The Belle of the Sea” in Spanish, the image is striking, conjuring up a woman in the surf, her incredibly twisted strands of hair billowing behind her in the flow of water. The sandy color hearkens to the beach, and the curved legs and arms further suggest a bathing beauty, drenched in sun, submerged in the rolling clear waves of a small Spanish playa. With one arm supporting her and the other against her head to block the sun, the movement of this piece is enticing, beckoning the viewer to drift away with her on the tide.
