SACRED HEART

1940

Granite

Colegio de La Enseñanza, Santiago de Compostela

Noted for its geometric composition and the total absence of the hollow. It's conceived as a column with the arms extended
forming a cross. The rigidity of the forms is accentuated with the hang of the wrinkles, in form of lines and without movement. On the chest is the heart surrounded by a bundle of rays. The head also follows this trend cubist being an almost perfect sphere. The composition of the Christ Redeemer is rigid but the figure is more human in hands gesture towards viewer and smiling face.
