Eyes of the past and present


Eyes of time

This is the point at which the forest’s past and present meet. Before, from here one could see the lower slopes of Mount Ereñozar and the mouth of the Santimamiñe cave. Referring to his visit to the Santimamiñe caves in 1951, Ibarrola comments that “My first glimpse of the cave paintings had a profound effect on me” . Years later, Ibarrola wanted to paint the eyes of those early artists within the forest.
