In the summer of 2017, Sojo had the initiative to acquire a replica of the “Arracada de Madrigalejo” for its municipal museum through micro-patronage
MURAL LA ARRACADA
The Arracada is a gold earring, of Celtic origin, kept in the National Archaeological Museum of Madrid, which the collective memory was forgetting. The City Council, through the Tourist Office, and the “Fernando el Católico” Cultural Association joined the proposal.
And it was the “Arracada” that Sojo painted on the mural, in a cul-de-sac on San Juan Street. The painting occupies the upper part of a corner of concrete blocks and bricks, which has managed to change its imprint, to fix the gaze on the mural and obviating the construction material.
The image represents the essential part of the arracada, with golden tones, from the darkest to the lightest, reproducing the incidence of light on the embossing of the jewel. In giant size, you can see the gold work of this important Celtic piece of our heritage, which was carved more than 20 centuries ago.
