100 Faces, Auditorio de Tenerife, Santa Cruz, Tenerife

It seems appropriate that a building as unusual and imposing as the Auditorio de Tenerife Adán Martín should be located in an area of Santa Cruz where quirks are as common as sunny days.

Opposite the Auditorio is the Black Fort, an historic contrast that’s more than 350 years younger. Above the fort is the lush curve of the Palmetum whose palms are framed by snow clad mountains on a warm February afternoon in Tenerife. Off to one side are the colourful circular tanks at the refinery, not the most aesthetic of vistas but at least they’ve made an effort.

Most curious of all are the rocks of a hundred faces.

The huge blocks protecting the Auditorium from the Atlantic were transformed a couple of years ago by a Bulgarian artist called Stoyko Gagamov, who turned the dull shapes into an unusual outdoor art gallery by painting portraits of famous musicians on them.

The strange thing is that we've found a second image of Bob Dylan on the internet. Furthermore there is a YouTube movie about the instance which shows a third Dylan image. Anyone with an explanation?
