Menina Minotaurina Sculpture

INFORMATION

The owner of the San Cayetano Service Station, Gregorio García Madrid, has created the Isleta de las Artes (Islet of the Arts), a place where works are exhibited, among which we can highlight the Menina Minotaurina. This work of the sculptor Pepe Yagües is a version of the myth of Danaé (locked in a tower by his father and fertilized by Zeus). The tower is a “guardainfante”, a name also given to the garment of the menines. In the sculpture, Infant Minotaur (the man with bull’s head is a constant that appears continuously in the work of Yagües) replaced Infante Danae. The theme used by Pepe Yagües arises from the great myths generated along the history: the Minotaur, the Troyes horse, the Greek sculpture, etc. The materials used in his works are generally very varied: wood, aluminum, acrylic, iron, paper, graphite, among others.
