Description

The momument consists of two complementary parts. First, a stone column with a bronze portrait of Adelardo Covarsí. To the right, a set of diverse sculptures made of stone recalls a hunting scene, a preferred theme of Covarsí, where the two main personages, after returning from the 'montería' (hunt for mountain animals, als boars, bears and deer), are standing before the effigy of the artist who immortalized them in his paintings. Behind them are two monteros call collecting the pack of hunting dogs that accompanied them on their hunt.
