    I found it! Here is a description about the “Man Looking at the Sea” sculpture. This is a translation from Spanish to English from the website: http://www.flickriver.com/photos/recesvintus/4029718003/

    “On the outskirts of Moraira, between the beach and Platgetes Ampolla, is this perennial iron watch, scanning the horizon restlessly from his crow’s nest of stone.

    His view evokes the constant concern of the people of the sea, always looking on the horizon silhouette relief craft his own in his return from fishing. It also reminds us of old times, when, back in the sixteenth century, there were frequent raids by Berber pirates and had to be constantly alert for his arrival. Finally, after reviving memories of the life and history of Moraira, invites us to imitate him, now without fear or concerns, and quietly enjoy the beautiful panorama that is visible from your location.

    This is the “Man looking at sea,” by the javeanense sculptor Toni Marí Sart:

      Oh, my … that is so tremendous, Shelly!! I thought he was searching, looking, watching for something. But, “a perennial iron watch … ” for pirate raids is WAY better than what I imagined.
      Thank you so much for do this research! ❤
