El Cristo

The Christ of the hill

Detalle de El CristoThe Cristo del Otero (Christ of the hill) is a gigantic sculpture in concrete and bronze in a post-cubist style. It was erected in 1931 on the outskirts of Palencia on a small hill which dominates the city of Palencia. Over time it has become an authentic symbol of Palencia. An unhappy stiff column...and on top of that blind! What is more the eyes are missing leaving just empty sockets. Pathetic. I have painted 24 versions of Cristo del Otero, some have disappeared, others I've sold... From the 14 pictures that I present to you here, half form part of private collections. (From the point of curiosity the one entitled The Umbrella Christ is presently the property of Her Royal Highness Princess Elena of Spain and the one entitled Elevator Christ is in the hands of a Mohatma Kader, Abu-Dabi, United Arab Emirates). Enjoy!
