The largest and most comprehensive model of the Mosque

I have little information on this model, is that the author is called Jorge Brunet, the network that says it is a professional model and the crib, which is more than clear seeing photographs. It appears that this was done for an exhibition with the name of “100 year” not more. As part of the series The Ages of Man, continue investigating. Here are the photos so alucinéis.

    Mind you, most of it all came out of rough, large wooden “chopo” timber, carefully selected, seasoned and transformed in the workshop located just beneath his apartment in Marqués de Vadillo in Madrid; supporting a delicate plaster and handpainted work (each column was painstakingly painted according to available historic pictures and references). The suspended structure and modular design were truly beautiful.

    He wasn’t shy of materiality. Another extraordinary job in which I had the privilege to assist with, was the massive acrylic, cork and plush model for the highway system for the Bilbao region.
