I love all of the public sculpture in Havana, and this is no exception. They are all over the place and add to the character and charm of one of my favorite cities. All of these, including this one, are very well-done.

It is important that there is a statue of dancing as it is so important to preserve the history of Cuban dance. The building is also interesting as it is their historic post office. The letter drop is the mouth of another statue.

This is a life-size bronze statue to Antonio Gades, a famous Spanish flamenco dancer (apparently favoured by Fidel Castro) situated in the Plaza de la Cathedral. It has great detail. There is also a plaque.
