2013

Between Calle Algarrobo and Calle Almendro

Alicante artist Javier Pastor depicts in this mural his abstract work Cabeza de toro, an oil painting on board. The author celebrates Miguel Hernández with his verse Despierta, toro de España in reference to one of the animals with a more clear and present symbology in the poet’s works.

…Sálvate.

Despierta, toro: esgrime, desencadena, víbrate.
Levanta, toro: truena, toro, abalánzate.
Atorbellínate, toro: revuélvete.
Sálvate, denso toro de emoción y de España.

Sálvate.
