Octavio Gonzalez - Arte En Bronce (Art In Bronze)

Born in the small city of Tepatitlán, Jalisco, Octavio took the challenges and obsticles he grew up with and turned them in beautiful artistic sculptures that are admired by so many.

Octavio Gonzalez's famous downtown Bucerias sculpture represents the divers of the area.

"Estatua del Buzo" sculpture in Bucerias is of a man diving to dislodge an oyster with a bar. The face of the statue was fashioned after that of Ramón Barraza, in order to pay homage to this famous local diver who collected for oysters for 40 years.
