The dance of the "Drac del Carme" (Dragon of St. Carmen) 1928. Garrotxa Regional Archives. Image Services. Dou collection.

The "Drac del Carme" is the work of Toribi Sala and Manuel Traité. It was made in the "Arte Cristiano" workshop, and is now owned by the Carmelite Monastery. In 1928 he danced horizontally in his first dance, as shown in the photo, but the following year he danced upright, as he is shown today.

If you look, you can see that his body is made like a cart.

He dances in the Plaça del Carme on 16 July, the festival for St. Carmen.
