5 Visit: Panteón Familia García Obrero
The family vault of Antonio Garcia y Obrero, who was custodian of municipal funds, a lawyer, an owner and a councilman in Córdoba, presents two essential characteristics. First, its magnificent white marble where the pillars of the corners culminate in a torch-shaped mould, which symbolically represents purification. Second , above all, its magnificent sculptures of female winged angels. The work is well done both in the textures and volumes. The sculpture also has a sense of movement. Highlights at a glance, the good work of the wings, very stylized and almost resemble those of a bird. The figure embraces the cross, revealing his faith. We should also highlight the wreath and the hand holding a ribbon , which has ridges that resemble a tree. The work came from the workshop of Vda De. M. López. In the family pantheon there are many members of the County of Padilla , instituted in times of Isabel II (1856).
