"Sagunto". Sculpture made ​​of Carrara marble by Catalan sculptor Agustín Querol (1860-1909). It symbolizes a historic episode occurred in Sagunto, capital of the province of Valencia, Spain, in which its inhabitants preferred the sacrifice of their lives rather than surrender to the army of Hannibal, the Carthaginian leader who attacked the city in 218 AC. Their heroic resistance is expressed by a mother who, after killing her son, commits suicide with a rapier.
