  • . A traditional craft The statue of the Biznaguero is one of two statues representing traditional crafts of Malaga. The other is the statue of the Cenachero - the fisherman selling fish from baskets - which is a few hundred metres away at the entrance to the Plaza de la Marina. Biznagas are bunches of jasmine, but prepared in a special way. The flowers, individual flowers, are picked while still in bud, and then the Biznaguero (or probably his wife, if we are going to be honest here!) takes a thistle head with sharp spikes, and pops a jasmine flower on each spike. You end up with something looking like a giant dandelion puff ball, but made of sweet-smelling jasmine. As you can see, this is a labour-intensive craft, and the flowers, out of water of course, fade and die fast. They are pretty pricey and sold in up-market flower shops at 18-22 € each. Each head! So nowadays you are most likely to see the biznagas made of silk rather than real ones. But this statue is a lovely reminder of the traditions of the past. .
