The Maternity Hospital now boasts the sculpture donated by the Marble School of Fines
The work, in yellow Macael marble, depicts a pregnant woman and is located in the reception area of the hospital.

The Torrecárdenas Maternity and Children’s Hospital in Almería now has a sculpture on loan from the Marble School in Fines, a training centre attached to the Andalusian Employment Service (SAE) of the Regional Ministry of Employment, Enterprise and Self-Employment, depicting a pregnant woman.

The work, which belongs to the collection of the Escuela del Mármol, was created by the artist David Alvarado in yellow marble from Macael during the 2nd International Sculpture Symposium organised by the SAE training centre in Fines. Entitled ‘Yerma’, it represents a pregnant woman and her baby.

The temporary loan of this sculpture is governed by a collaboration agreement signed in 2022 by the Provincial Directorate of the SAE and the management of the Torrecárdenas University Hospital.

According to the agreement, with this action the SAE collaborates in the activities of beautification of the aforementioned hospital centre programmed by the University Hospital Torrecárdenas and in its Humanisation Plan, which has been under development for several months. The SAE also fulfils the general interest of bringing culture closer to the users of the hospital complex, as well as contributing to disseminate the activity of Vocational Training for Employment in extractive industries carried out by the Marble School, which is also a National Reference Centre in this field, and to raise awareness of the quality of the natural stone of Macael through its artistic use.
