The Cervantes garden inaugurates its mural dedicated to Don Quixote (09/11/2020)

| With this, there are already twelve works of urban art that have been made in our municipality | The councilor for Urban Quality, Pedro López, has presented, together with the Alhameño artist, Andrés Guillén 'Murfy', a new mural dedicated to the masterpiece 'El Quijote', by Miguel de Cervantes from La Mancha, made in the garden that carries Name. According to López, "it is the second most widely read literary work in history, only behind the Bible, and translated into more than 140 languages." The work covers a total of 165 square meters, where the painter has captured a fragment of 'Don Quixote' as a sequence, where you can see one of the best-known fights in this novel, when Alonso Quijano, accompanied by his faithful squire , faces the giants (windmills). The scene begins at the level of the stands, with black and white tones.

As it evolves and the main character goes mad, the colors change.

Among other details throughout the mural, the image in which Don Quixote meets the windmills stands out, with a blue sky inspired by Van Gogh's 'The Starry Night'.

You can also see the evolution of one of the mills to giant, which leads to the end of the mural, when Don Quixote collides and falls, returning again to black and white tones, as a return to the real world. 'Murfy' has ensured that "of each piece that is made, the neighbors take over and take care of it." The councilor has invited all those urban creators who are interested in developing their art in public spaces to present their proposals, "whose works contribute to improve and beautify the image of Alhama."
