The ethnographic miniature museum Ángel Reinón, brings together more than 400 pieces of perfectly formed objects, made from iron or wood. It’s a unique collection which recovers traditional professions which nowadays are lost or modernized. Handmade, each piece is unique in its beauty and originality.
They stand out as a whole, for its perfection and for the number of hours that the artist used in its creation, the tractor, the winch forge, the agricultural plough and a truly extraordinary carriage. We can also find moving objects that allowed us to plough, to fill the meat from the pig slaughter, to bake bread and to distil essences.
The collection is distributed among nine wall exhibitors and five free-standing wall cabinets. This work is made by Ángel Reinón Sánchez, who was born in Caravaca in 1924, into a large family of nine children. He leaves school at a young age to devote himself exclusively to the work of a blacksmith, with endless work days, because his time off was dedicated to doing extra work with his brother, to increase his low wages. Great-grandfather, grandfather and father all being blacksmiths, he is pleased to report that his two sons and a grandson continue the family tradition.
This is an excellent arts and crafts collection, a unique display of material culture of obvious anthropological, ethnological and linguistic interest.
