César Manrique’s sculpture Fobos will return to the Tahiche roundabout by December, the Cabildo has said.

The gleaming mobile that represents three orbs is one of the most impressive of Manrique’s “wind toys” and is located at the junction where the artist lost his life in a car accident 31 years ago yesterday.

During his life, Manrique only saw the construction of one “wind toy” – the large red one at Arrieta. The others were constructed after his death, based on plans in his notebooks.

Each structure is made of hand-made parts, many of which are not available in the Canaries, which means that repairing them is often a long and expensive task.
