| The work 'Pájaro de barro', in its double dimension of sculpture and poetry, metaphorically transmits messages referring to loneliness and death, with an appeal to citizen responsibility | The project arises from the book 'Still life', recently presented by the Gollarín publishing house in Carva. Caravaqueño artist Pascual Adolfo López and also caravaqueño poet Jesús Martínez pay their particular tribute to the victims of COVID-19 with the exhibition 'Pájaro de barro', which is temporarily installed in the Temple of Caravaca de la Cruz. This montage, which combines the clay sculpture created by Pascual Adolfo López, as a result of a personal experience, and the poem by Jesús Martínez metaphorically reminds both people who have died from the coronavirus and all those who in one way or another they have been affected, directly or indirectly, by the pandemic.
Loneliness, death or an appeal to citizen responsibility are some of the messages that the work transmits. It is installed in the Templete, an emblematic building of the city, at the request of the Gollarín publishing house, since the exhibition has arisen from the book 'Still life', recently presented on the esplanade of the 'La Soledad' Archaeological Museum, with poems by Jesús Martínez and illustrations by Pascual Adolfo López The opening ceremony of the exhibition was attended by the mayor, José Francisco García; the artists authors of the works; the editor of Gollarín, Francisco Marín, and of councilors of the municipal Corporation.
García thanked Gollarín for his commitment and the gesture of the two artists from Caravaco in the face of a situation, that of the coronavirus, for which he has once again asked the citizens for caution.
