Other activitiesThe Basket Sculpture
The work made by the Portuguese artist Doña Rita Loureiro da Silva, is completely made of metal. It symbolizes a recognition of the hard trade of agriculture and livestock. The basket represents the hard work of harvesting almonds and potatoes mainly in Tejeda. Its large size alludes to the great human effort involved in completing the baskets of these products in such a hostile orography.
The place for its location was chosen by Doña Encarna Domínguez Afonso, who was the mayor at the time, and who never imagined that it would become one of the symbols of Tejeda.
