Belmond La Residencia’s summer garden party revealed a fantastic surprise this year. Conscious of the tennis-themed day, the hotel’s resident sculptor, Juan Waelder, had been working on a new piece of art to adorn the tennis centre, located among olive groves facing the beautiful mountains on one side and the stunning Mediterranean on the other.
The surprise artwork was unveiled during the garden party, and depicts an olive tree trunk from which a tennis player’s arm emerges with the hand holding a tennis ball in serve position. The amazing sculpture transforms from tree trunk to strong arm, showing muscles, veins and fingers in tight grip. Along the sculpture base, the names of the grand slams and major tennis stars from the past until today, have been inscribed. The sculpture will be given pride of place on a pedestal alongside the tennis courts for all to view.
Visit Belmond La Residencia and stroll along the beautiful Sculpture Garden, which is kept by and overseen by the sculptor Juan Waelder. If you would like to take a private tour or experience a magnificent master class – for resident guests and outside visitors- Waelder will be on site to show you around, personally.
