Havana, August 8 (RHC-PL)-- Two sculptures of the U.S. novelist Ernest Hemingway have a particular impact on tourists who visit Cuba from all over the world.
The first is a bust is in the coastal town of Cojimar, east of the capital, where the author lived and worked for many years. The bust is facing the sea, and the sculpture was built in the 1950s with bronze collected by his friends and fishermen from propellers and other parts of boats.
In the Floridita Bar-Restaurant in Havana, there is life-size bronze sculpture created by the Cuban artist Jose Villa. It is a statue of Hemingway leaning on the bar while drinking his favorite cocktail, a daiquiri.
The sculpture at the bar weighs about 300 kilograms, and has a book and reading glasses in front of it, along with a real daiquiri, which is replaced every day as eternal tribute to the U.S. novelist.
The two sculptures are visited by travelers who want to tour the main places where Hemingway lived and to learn about his relationship with the Cuban people.
