  • A normal sculpture, larger than natural size. Unfortunately they have vandalized it with graffiti.

  • The figure of five tons and four meters high is located in the place chosen by entrepreneurs, the top of the high ridge of the dam, located on the left side of the wall. The sculpture shows a smelter of early 20th century brewing metal cast in a molded case. Activity of enormous significance for the economy of the city. It rests on a granite base, achieving an Alliance of materials as a dual recognition to the pioneers of metallurgy and mining. There is a plaque in tribute to the victims of the tragedy Metalurgica Tandil. The morning of Thursday, January 9, 2014, there was an explosion in the oven 6 of the well known "Metalurgica Tandil" which left as a balance in the days following the death of three workers, Lucas Seren (27), Luciano Vargas (31) and Juan Cruz Andrade (34). The fatal accident happened after repeated complaints by the Union, in relation to the breach of the rules of safety and risk prevention. Three workers suffered serious burns, by liquid iron that is poured on them by exploiting the oven N ° 6 of the factory. According to the testimony, one of the pipes that lead to the oven, had covered, and one of the workers was to uncover: others were to the side looking at what he did. It was like a pot to pressure, instantly in that oven drove out its content of iron in a liquid state. Unfortunate that those responsible go unpunished. It is worth to visit it in homage to them, although it was not the origin of this sculpture.
