It is work of the Andalusian (Villanueva del Duque) sculptor Aurelio Teno. It is 1980 and was a gift from the Spanish Government to the city of Buenos Aires by the 400 th anniversary of its foundation.

Don Quixote brandishes his sword. The author has made other QUIXOTES and sculptures, of which I remember a "monument to el Aguador", in the Plaza of the Romanilla, the Centre of Granadashow original
