The research was generated around the theme of death and the situations, facts or beliefs that exist around it, such as objects linked to the protection or transcendence of the soul. My interest was to find the preserved folklore in the town of Bilbao or in parts of the Basque country. The project maintains relationships between language, symbolism, beliefs and ancient funeral practices and is a set between various disciplines such as painting, sculpture and the object.
