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. Plan my Punta del Este trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

  • Nice beach town, but missed the excitement. Maybe wrong time of year, but worth a stop nonetheless
  • Simple art work but quite mesmerizing. Lucky it wasn't too busy when I was there because it was freezing cold and windy.
