Admire the simple artistry and homely message of Monumento Al Ovejero, a sculpture that acts as a tribute to the agricultural heritage of the nation. Created by artist Francisco Campo Torrealba in 1944, the sculpture depicts 12 life-size figures in bronze. The scene is of a shepherd holding the reins of his horse that follows behind him, and a whip that guides the sheep huddled in front. Inspired by verses written by poet Joseph Grimaldi Acotto, the statue is a fitting monument to the agricultural and artistic heritage of Chile.
