A bronze statue by a well-known artist titled 'Reclining woman looking out to sea' can finally look out and be seen again. The work, in central Marbella near El Faro, had become hidden behind plants and the sculptor, Ramón Aymerich, had grown tired of asking the council to cut them back.

Following a report in Diario SUR, council workers were quick to take out the shears last week. The Madrid-born artist, who lives locally, now wants to see his work moved to a more prominent position in the resort.
