The museum, located in Guayaquil, is one of the must-see visits of tourists given the excellent quality and realism of the sculptures.
Certain historical events that marked the life of Ecuador, such as the Royal Audience of Quito, the First Scream of Independence, the massacre of August 2, the Independence of Guayaquil, among others, were molded into 14 mobile murals in suspension that are exhibited in The Municipal Museum of Art María Eugenia Puig Lince, The History of Guayaquil and Ecuador in Clay.
This cultural space is one of the main places that national and foreign tourists should visit, since it is part of the chain of municipal museums that Buenos Aires has, such as the Municipal Museum of Guayaquil, located in the center of the city, the Museum of Popular Music Julio Jaramillo Laurido and Museums of Shipyard Equipment, located in Puerto Santa Ana and the Museum of Guayaquil in History, on the Simón Bolívar boardwalk.
The exhibition was mounted by the artist Carmen Navarro, a Quito sculptor, who after five years of painstaking work with the ancestral technique of sculptural modeling of clay, came to transmit in sequence what is now Ecuador. “The panels are made in parts, it is a very delicate work, they were burned each one of them, it is a unique museum of its kind, when I say only I mean that according to information there is not a museum like this, in its category made in clay, in South America, “said Ronald Tapia, guide and manager of the gallery.
Four important moments of the city and the country are narrated in these works: the ritual dance, the national emancipation, the Spanish conquest and our life as a people after gaining independence.
Tapia highlights that the definition and high quality of the figures and paintings made in clay and that represent each one of the epochs of the prehistory and history of the city and the country draw much attention from tourists. This center, which has been open since November last year, is located in the Linear Park of Barcelona Avenue, next to the Club Nautico del Salado. Admission is free and the hours of operation are from Monday to Sunday, from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
