OLD PRISON OF ALMACELLES
TECHNIQUE: Fresco painting the wall
BUILDING: Old Prison of Almacelles
TOWN/REGION: Almacelles (Catalonia)
DIMENSIONS: 14 m2
Located on the staircase access to the old prison, it shows the cubicle space of the dungeon circumscribed within a dynamic wheel that focuses the viewer’s eye. The various elements have a symbolic character and refer us to the pass of time and freedom (key and lock, feet, footprints, coats, watches, eyes, plates and spoons, light and door). They evoke the life in the cell and the people who were imprisoned. The light and the door are a clear reference to freedom.
