El Angel de la Capilla
This is a portrait of Vicente Estevan. Every year in the Capilla of Villalonga, a small village in Spain, he has laboriously made a giant religious painting using only coloured sand :– “La Alfombra” .
It covers the whole floor of the chapel
Each year during the celebration of Corpus Christi it is blessed by the Priest and forms the basis of a religious festival for the whole village. At the end of the festival the floor is swept clean and Vicente starts to plan for the following year.
He has been doing this with no reward every year for nearly seventy years. It is his life’s work.
Vicente is currently 88 years old. This is his last Alfombra
Retrato de Vicente Estevan. Cada año, en la Capilla de Villalonga, un pequeño pueblo de España, Vicente ha realizado laboriosamente y de forma altruista, un cuadro religioso gigante utilizando solo arena de colores: - “La Alfombra”.
