Spanish Literature Monument at Plaza de España | Madrid, Spain

Cervantes monument rear side, in the middle of Plaza de España Madrid.

This photograph presents the back of the Monument of Cervantes and Don Quixote which you saw in one of my previous photos. The sculptures on the rear side of the monument are also connected to the art of Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra.

The characters in this photograph are metaphorical. On the throne, as shown, sits a personified view of Literature. The five other statues are symbols of five continents where the literature of Cervantes became popular.

I could not leave the Plaza de España without taking this photograph. The fountain at the feet of the sculptures was enlightened in gold which strongly contrasted the late evening along with the black night sky in Madrid. This contrast of colours and significance behind the postures creates a unique impression of what impacted the worldwide literature of the art of Cervantes.

The artists who created this monument back in 1930 in the middle of the Plaza de España, unquestionably knew how to stress the importance of the Golden Age of Spanish Literature in their vision.
