Biosphere Monument

The Biosphere Monument is located in the Biosphere Garden, a garden created with the purpose to preserve the memory of the "Biosphere Reserve" award given to the city of Santana by UNESCO.
Opened in March 2012, the Biosphere Monument was designed by the Madeira sculptor Luís Paixão and seeks to portray the planet Earth, in its spherical form, in symbiosis with human being, in this case represented on the female figure. The base of the sculpture is based on the element of water, source of life.
