The Fingers of Punta del Este, Punta del Este

Many people interpret The Fingers of Punta del Este as either a hand of a zombie god come to take his vengeance on a sinful Earth, or the grasping fingers of a buried giant. In fact, neither assumption is correct. Created by Chilean artist Mario Irrazabal in 1982, the beach sculpture has since become an iconic attraction in Punta del Este. Take an artistic photo of the sculpture and imagine all the mythical creatures it might represent. Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Punta del Este trip simple and quick.

  • This sculpture is one of the identities of Punta. You can't go in Punta without going there and taking a picture. I think.

  • Is the postcard of the region and therefore a place much visited by tourists. The trick is to get a picture with all your fingers and with no one else near. Recommend.
