Marimba Sculpture

Marimba Sculpture by Rudy Girón

Here’s a marimba sculpture found in Santo Domingo del Cerro representing Guatemala’s national musical instrument. How you like it?

He aquí una foto de la escultura de la marimba que se encuentra en Santo Domingo del Cerro; una representación artística del la marimba, el instrumento nacional de Guatemala. ¿Qué les parece?

  • One interesting thing about this sculpture is that Efraín Recinos the artist created 2 or 3 “Guatemalitas” as marimba’s players, so it is not yet finished… quite nice isn’t?

    Lo interesante es que aún no está completa, el Maestro Recinos creó sobre ella a los “marimbistas” una serie de 2 ó 3 “Guatemalitas” que tocan la marimba…

    • Thank you Aldo for sharing with us about the upcoming art pieces that will complement the marimba sculpture by the maestro Efraín Recinos.

    I love marimbas! Unfortunately, I haven’t found any good recordings available here in the USA of marimba bands. Anyone know of any?

    As for the sculpture, it’s not quite to my liking. It looks too “cold” to me. Marimbas are such warm, sumptuous instruments with the wood and create such warm tones. For me the sculpture evokes the opposite of what marimbas evoke.
