Tribute to Antxon Ayestaran

CRISTTI, Mikel (San Sebastián 1955)

Stela which resembles an inverted music score, with five vertical slots, intended to emphasise the most important aspect of Antxon Ayestaran: music. The steal emerges from the ground and rises towards the sky, raising the voices of the choir.

Artist commissioned directly by Añorga K.E. (Añorga Sports Association). The sculpture was unveiled on 13th July 1990, initially located in the gardens next to the football pitch. Later, in 1998, it was moved to in front of the old cinema, which is now the Antxon Ayestaran Cultural Centre. Next to the sculpture there is a plaque on which has been engraved a poem by José María Aranalde. The inscription states "ANTXON AIESTARAN PIKABEA / AÑORGAKO HERRIAK / ZINEZKO AÑORGATAR / HAUNDI BATI / 1990-VII-13. ASKO EGIN HUEN BAINA / DANA EZ ZEGOK EGINA / INORK EZ BAIT DU INOIZ IRITSI / MAITE DUEN GAINA / HIRE LANAREN ORDAINA / GU GUZTION ALEGINA .. / HORI DUK HIRE OROIZ EGITEN / DUGUN LAGUN ZIÑA".
