Paloma atada (Restrained Dove)

José Azorín

“Paloma atada”


C/Camino Viejo del Oriolet

José Azorín is a multifaceted artist, painter, engraver, drawer and sculptor from Alicante. He was one of the painters who went to Orihuela in 1976 for the “Tribute of the Villages of Spain to Miguel Hernández”. He left in the San Isidro district his Paloma atada, an iconic image that he repeated again in 2012 and donated the original to the Cultural Department of the town. This is Azorín’s tribute to Miguel Hernández with a restrained dove as a symbol of the deprivation of freedom that the poet suffered and where he ended his days.
