Curiosities

One more oval appears, corresponding to the subsidiary brotherhoods, but in white, to make it symmetrical.

This panel is 166’2 x 250 cm in size, and is composed of 216 tiles of baked and painted clay. It was made for the hermitage of El Rocío, and placed during the restoration that was carried out on its façade in 1942.

This one shows a scene of the pilgrimage of El Rocío, but totally idealized. In a walled space, which people enter through a large pointed arch, the procession of the Virgin is held, accompanied by priests, acolytes, faithful, horsemen, etc., heading to the chapel, which is located on the right side, with a large Gothic doorway carved in stone.

Also, like the previous one, the present panel appears bordered with a wide border painted with leaf motifs, between which, in circular tondos, appear the names of the existing Filial Brotherhoods up to that date, which are: Gines, Jerez de la Frontera, Dos Hermanas, Olivares, Hinojos, Lucena del Puerto, Bonares, La Puebla del Río, Córdoba, Sanlúcar la Mayor, Triana, Bollullos del Condado and Valverde, one of them appearing in white, without inscription, but it was done so to be symmetrical to the panel that was on the other side of the balcony of the façade of the Marismeña hermitage.

In the lower part, at the very edge of the decorative border, there are two inscriptions. These are allusive to the factory where it was made and the artist who painted it. Thus, on the left hand side it reads FCA. RAMOS REJANOand on the right PTO. A. MUÑOZ.

At the present time it is placed where the ceramic panel from 1919 one on each side of the door that gives access to the choir.
