Join us to discover sculptor, teacher, draftsman and writer Rufino Mesa (Valle de Santa Ana-Badajoz, 1948) and Comella Sculpture Park.

Comella, Escultura y Naturaleza (CEN), is a sculpture park in a Mediterranean forest, a cultural proposal that unites contemporary art and nature, a work in progress that contains completed elements along with others under construction. In the sculpture park, the hand of time and nature are in charge of completing the project. 

Guided by Rufino Mesa we will contemplate more than one hundred sculptures organized by a circuit of paths where walking surrounded by pine trees and Mediterranean flora is combined with the contemplation of the sculptural installations.

The circle, the shape of the ring (in the photo) is the sculpture that has guided his entire project and is a significant part of the sculptor's life. At La Comella, sculpture is the concept associated with action and the pact with nature. The commitment as an implicit part of the work, the sculpture is the material and living face of the alliance. The stone ring presents and represents union and reconciliation.
