The divulging projects of “Magic Forms of Canary Islands”, “Canary Islands Seven Colours” and “Canary Islands from the Sea” are addressed to present to the general public the extraordinary Geological Patrimony existing at the Canarian Archipelago. Though the initial outline of the three projects was based on artistic and touristic promotion criteria, their later development has turn them out into an exceptional, attractive, didactic and formative tool. “Magic Formas of Canary Islands” try to show in the landscape imaginary forms of mithological personages, fantastic animals, objects of the daily life or literary personages that, in spite of being only imaginary products, as they came form the abstraction from real geologic or geomorphologic landscape elements, they they show us, in a playful and imaginative way,to the geology of the Archipelago. “Canary Islands Seven Colours”, show us the causes of the extraordinary variety of colours of earth, beaches, waters, the sky above Canary Islands and of the Cosmos. “Canary Islands from the Sea” gives us different and unknown images of the canarian coastswhere it is possible to find and interpret the geologic history of the Canary Islands.
