Allegory of Industry by Salvador Gurri

  • Description

The Allegory of Industry, a work by Salvador Gurri, shows a medallion inside which there is a beehive, a pulley and a winged sceptre above which there is an open hand with an eye in the centre.

Bees have been well known since ancient times for their constant hard work, human qualities that are attributed to them. The sceptre is a symbol of greatness and readiness, while the hand signifies industry and artifice, because almost all trades are carried out with the help of the hands. The eye represents the prudence which must govern industry.

The relief is located on the balcony on the left-hand arm of the main stairway of the Llotja.
