A little history

Another extended work, the tragic sinking of the liner Principe de Asturias. When passing from Rio de Janeiro hits a rock formation. In fact 450 people died and missed the valuable ornaments of marble and bronze statues were part of the monument.

The following year he commissioned a replica of the ornaments Madrid lost in the shipwreck. This came two years afternoon, but due to bureaucratic customs into the country only three years after arriving. This delay led to a deterioration of various parts of the shipment.
