This spacey looking view was taken at Manrique's former home. It's actually a coloured glass ball marking the edge of a path.
Instead of a traditional garden Lanzarote is covered in all kinds of cacti and succulents. You can probably tell by now that the sculpture above is one of Manrique's.
The walls that you can see above provide shelter for plants, most particularly grapevines which are an important crop in Lanzarote. At night the humidity is attracted to the hollows and is channelled to provide moisture to the plants.
Just like at Jameos del Agua the rooms at the Manrique Foundation are built in collapsed lava chambers.
Large picture windows give a view out to the lava field that the house is built in. If you click on the photo you should be able to see the folds of lava where they have cooled mid-flow. I have only seen volcanoes on the tv and as awesome as they are it amazing to see the evidence of their arrested flow looking as though it could be coming towards you.
Manrique collected many artworks in his life and many are housed here at the Foundation. This glass piece above is by Adolph Luther and concerns concave and convex surfaces.
