OUR LADY WITH HER FLAG IN THE AQUEDUCT.
The historian Diego de Colmenares, in his 'History of the distinguished city of Segovia and compendium of the stories of Castile', says that: "For those same days, on March 21 (1520), the feast of St. Benedict, a devoted citizen of ours, named Antonio de la Jardina, assayer of the mint, put at his expense the stone image of Our Lady , in the hollow or niche of the bridge that looks at noon; and that of San Sebastián in the niche that faces north: religious action that deserves this memory. Once it is proved that the statues were missing from there, so that the niches were made; or they were of Hercules, as they say old memories, or of others ».
VOX SEGOVIA ASKS OUR LADY WITH HER FLAG AND THINKS THAT BEFORE REMOVING THE VIRGIN OF HER HORNACINA, WHICH TAKEN OVER 500 YEARS, HAD TO HAVE SET THE REPLY WHILE THE ORIGINAL WAS RESTORED.
THE SOCIALIST CITY COUNCIL COULD NOT JUSTIFY THAT THE ROPE AND FLAG OF SPAIN WEAR OR DETERIORATE THE IMAGE OF THE VIRGIN.
IN MARCH THE WORKS OF PHOTOGRAMMETRY AND 3D WITH THE VIRGIN IN ITS SITE, MORE THAN 250 PHOTOGRAPHS, TO MAKE THE COPY.
ONCE THE REPRODUCTION IS DONE, THE ORIGINAL ONE IS REPLACED BY THE DUPLICATE ONE AND THE VIRGIN CONTINUES TO FACE ALL OF US AND SERVES SHIELD AGAINST THE EVILS THAT HURT SPAIN.
IN THE NICHE NORTH OF THE AQUEDUCT I WOULD ALSO HAVE TO PUT THE IMAGE OF SAN SEBASTIÁN, LIKE THE FAMOUS DEVOTE, WHICH ALSO CHALLENGED THE BIRRIA OF SAN JUAN STREET OR FAUNO CLAUDIO.
WAITING FOR OUR LADY IN THE AQUEDUCT WITH HER FLAG AND THE JUDGMENT OF THE TSJCyL.
