In the area of Mojacar you see the Indalo man everywhere.
He features in fences as part of the design.
Home-owners make sure he is somewhere on their house for good luck.
He features in business signs on the side of white vans.
People put him on their cars.
Artists take liberties and depict him slightly differently but still very funky looking.
Shops include him in their signs, perhaps to make people think they are a trusted establishment.
And, as with any ancient symbol, it is commercialised and sold to unsuspecting tourists to take home a little piece of Spain.
I must admit I did buy a pair of earrings with the Indalo man hanging from them, but my favourite Indalo man that has come home with us is one hand made by my friend Elaine.
Do you feel suitably educated now about the Indalo man? Just think how bright you'll come across if that ever comes up in a quiz you're taking part in.
Until next time, be good, stay safe, and we wish you luck and happiness.
