I think this is one of the most pertinent pieces by Manrique that is on display at the foundation. According to lore of the Canary islands which Lanzarote is a part of when Atlantis submerged to ruin there was a volcanic eruption that created other islands covering the ruined civilization of Atlantis. Referencing mythology the Canaries are in the location of where Atlantis supposedly was. That information is vague. The archipelago formed by the volcanic eruption became known as the Canaries. The name actually roots to canines, and not the bird. This is due to the fact that when Romans landed on the island they encountered a fierce native presence known as Guanches that had packs of attack dogs. There are still canary birds, whose species derives from the islands living on the islands, but supposedly their name also roots back to the latin word "canis" for dog.
