Our Lady of Covadonga

1908. . On display elsewhere

This work is the plaster model of Our Lady of Covadonga, made for the Covadonga Basilica.The final sculptural group was made of polychrome wood adorned with rhinestones. She presents a formal relationship between mother and child, since the relationship between the two figures is not maternal. The Child blesses in the manner of the taste of Cuattrocento. The definitive sculpture is located in its destination, inside the Covadonga Basilica.
