Sculptural group Folk Song by Miquel Blay, Palau de la Música, Barcelona, Spain

Sculptoric group Cançó Popular by Miquel Blay, Palau de la Música Catalana

Sculptural group Cançó Popular (Folk Song) by Miquel Blay at one corner of the façade in Palau de la Música Catalana.

The group is dominated by the figure of Sant Jordi, patron of Catalonia holding a senyera (our flag) and a sword.

In the very center there is a young lady singing and surrounded by common people, workers, men, women and children.
