Monumento al Ovejero, Punta Arenas

Admire the simple artistry and homely message of Monumento al Ovejero, a sculpture that acts as a tribute to the agricultural heritage of the nation. Created by artist Francisco Campo Torrealba in 1944, the sculpture depicts 12 life-size figures in bronze. The scene is of a shepherd holding the reins of his horse that follows behind him, and a whip that guides the sheep huddled in front. Inspired by verses written by poet Joseph Grimaldi Acotto, the statue is a fitting monument to the agricultural and artistic heritage of Chile.

  • I do not think it worthwhile to go especially to see him. There's nothing special. Now if you go out there, it can be. But a special visit doesn't make much sense
