The sculpture of 2.15 metres high was inaugurated in 2009, and represents the writer standing on a marble-type stone pedestal where we can read the inscription “Son of the Alhambra”, which he liked to call himself. He was elegantly dressed and had a certain air of adventurer, carrying in his left hand a notebook where he recorded the sensations he felt during his trip. It is cast in bronze giving it a greenish colour, which blends with the natural green of the woods. At his feet and on the pedestal, a Nasrid capital turned upside down, there is a travelling bag and a briefcase of symbolic drawings, which inspired the sculptor, Julio Lopez Hernandez in the encounter of two worlds, Irving’s original one, America, and Granada.
The Festival of Music and Dance of Granada in 1952 provided an impetus to the building of a theatre in the historical-artistic monuments complex.
