The statue has been set up at a restaurant where Paul ate 18 years ago in the restaurant El Morro, on the outskirts of the popular tourist attraction of Santiago; where Paul had lunch on January 14, 2000 with his two eldest sons, apparently attracted by the privileged view of the Caribbean Sea and the Sierra Maestra, and it has been especially designed to attract photo-conscious tourists by artist Mariano Frómeta Stivens, son of sculptor Luis Mariano Frómeta.
Paul is represented full-bodied and seated at the very same table where he sat with his two sons. The restaurant has preserved the furniture and tableware used by McCartney, along with a napkin signed by him. A metal replica of the napkin is screwed to the table.
The napkin reads: “Gracias! Paul McCartney, muy bueno 14/1/00″
