Pic of the Day: The works of Costa Rican artist Jorge Jiménez Deredia

July 15, 2019

Today’s featured photo shows the sculpture “Genesis de Huevo” by Italy-based Costa Rican artist Jorge Jiménez Deredia as it appeared in San José, Costa Rica.

The outdoor installation is 27 works of art on a large scale. Jiménez Deredia is the first Latin American sculptor whose work is located in the Basilica of St. Peter in the Vatican. His statue of Saint Marcellin Champagnat was completed in 2000 and inaugurated in the presence of Pope John Paul II.

Jiménez Deredia was born in Heredia in 1954, and lived there until he turned 17.

“I learned about the world through the coffee fields, about how raindrops fall, the smell of the earth, and I leaned that my destiny passed through those roots,” the artist said.
