Monumental Sculptures. Lady Of Elche. 200th anniversary of Darwin

Following the monumental sculptures by Manolo Valdés (more on his work here). La Dama de Elche (Lady of Elche) is a tribute to the original. The original is a bust Iberian IV or V century b. C.
These bronze sculptures have become a tourist attraction. It is on display at the Avenue Alfonso X. It's a pity that the exposure is fleeting.


Google Spain honors in his homepage to Charles Darwin (12 February 1809 / 19 April 1882). More on the proponent of modern biology, here.
