|"The Burro Project"
Jim Demetro has created a new sculpture and donated it to the city of Puerto Vallarta. It was installed in the Lazaro Cardenas
Park, three blocks south of the River Cuale, on February 28.
This new sculpture’s central figure is a life-size burro, an important part of the history of Mexico and Puerto Vallarta.
And in typical fashion, the burro is resisting the efforts of two small boys to move along. One boy pushes while another
offers a carrot and pulls on the reluctant donkey. A dog gets into the act, tugging on the pant leg of one of the boys.
The sculpture gets its name, Andale Bernado, from the boys urging the burro along - "Andale" - and "Bernado," the name
of the burro that posed for the sculptor. Demetro has designed this sculpture to be interactive. Kids can climb on the
burro’s back to have their picture taken. (See below.)
Smaller versions of Andale Bernado (pictured below) are available for purchase from the sculptor.
