There stands defiant the atlantean, like the figurehead of a ship that guides us towards the horizon, just towards where the sun dies.
This bronze statue was built by Manuel Coia under the title "O Soño do Emigrante" (the dream of the emigrant). It represents a hybrid between man and seagull who wants to fly across the sea to return home.
Unfortunately, this iconic statue was stolen from this location a few weeks ago.
I hope the police locate the person behind the theft and restore the statue to its place!
