DB Sculpture Patagonia

The DB sculpture by Fr Jose Ellero SDB was based on a 38 cm ceramic model, and eventually became a sculpture two metres tall on a two metre diameter base in reinforced concrete (cement and sand, and a wire mesh). The approximate weight of the statue is two tonnes. It stands on a cylindrical base one metre high and three metres in diameter, covered in stones from around the area which hint at the mountain range overlooking the villages and the southernmost city of the world: Ushuaia.

Base, pedestal and statue is cover 7 by 7 metres in all in line with the four cardinal points of the compass. Don Bosco is at the southernmost point of the world looking towards the north.

Sculptor: Fr Jose Ellero, SDB
