Filled with awe by the grand waves at Mancora Beach, Peruvian artisan Miguel Mejia handcrafts this sculpture, made of various recycled auto parts for an industrial chic. A curving wave is elaborated with openwork and petite bubble patterns to simulate foam. Riding the wave is a surfer, crafted of smaller auto parts for a creative design.
