My  Menina  sculture has been chosen by the Madrid City Council as a gift during the meeting that both held, coinciding with the 40th anniversary of the twinning of both cities.

During his visit, Almeida delivered my sculpture  to the mayor of New York, Enric Adams, as a personalized gift with the two flags, one of Spain and one of the United States, within the celebration of the 40th anniversary of the Brotherhood Agreement signed by Mayor Koch at that time.



USA9974. NEW YORK (NY, USA), 09/14/2022.- The mayor of New York, Eric Adams, holds a reproduction of a “menina pop” created for the 40-year twinning of Madrid and New York, today, during a press conference with the mayor of Madrid, José Luis Martínez Almeida, in New York (United States). The mayor of Madrid, José Luis Martínez Almeida, this Wednesday asked his New York colleague, Eric Adams, for advice on dealing with youth gangs, an issue that “worries them in Madrid, as everyone knows”, and that was one of the main issues of the meeting between the two municipal officials.
