Parque Aborigen, Mendoza

Parque Aborigen, Mendoza

The Parque Aborigen (Aboriginal Park) was inaugurated in 1933. The park founders aimed to bring together elements of indigenous flora, like creosote bush, cactus, broom, and many others. The Parque Aborigen features a work by Argentinian sculptor Luis Perlotti, ”Salute to the Sun”. This sculpture is set to demonstrate the homage to the pre-Columbian American culture. It is made of bronze and depicts a figure of an Indian sitting with his arms raised in worship to the sun.
