Description

Bronze statue of an older woman and a plaque with the lovers Calisto and Melibea in the hawk scene. The following fragment taken from the work has been engraved below:

'Soy una vieja cual Dios me hizo, no peor que todas …. Si bien o mal vivo, Dios es el testigo de mi corazón (Celestina, acto XII)' Nótese que se ha suprimido entre las dos frases un párrafo que enfatiza su actividad profesional: 'Vivo de mi oficio, como cada cual oficial del suyo, muy limpiamente. A quien no me quiere no lo busco; de mi casa me vienen a sacar, en mi casa me ruegan de Celestina'
