This monumental work was carried out by Fernando Capa. The most complex part of this work was its stability. More than 100 tons of weight supported in only two support points. The center of gravity was moved to make the work stable and safe.
As a curiosity, the work represents the progress of the villages. The lateral pieces refer to the ancestors, while the inner pieces represent the progress made by the villages.
