Phoenix / Fénix



This sculpture representing a young boy mounted on a phoenix was the ensign of the insurance company "La Unión y el Fénix" (Union & Phoenix). The company (created in 1879) exists no longer, but the sculptoric group remains on top of some buildings here in Madrid.

Esta escultura que representa a un joven montado sobre un fénix era el emblema de la compañía de seguros "La Unión y el Fénix". Dicha compañía, creada en 1879, ya no existe, pero el grupo escultórico se conserva en la cima de algunos edificios de Madrid.

The picture is quite dramatic with the the upraised arm against the mountain clouds.
