Bronze sculpture of the Angel of the Cathedral, by Ramon Salvatella (18th century). Photography: Martí Artalejo.

Baroque sculpture in bronze by Ramon Salvatella, from 1764. The sculpture is not very accurate, due to its intended use. The dress is designed with to be monumental. It is a somewhat disproportionate to correct the optical effect, and should be seen from a sotto in su perspective, i.e. seem from below. This correction can be observed in two anatomical details: the high layout of the waist and the advancement of the left leg at an angle, emphasising the volume.
