Los Aristócratas de la Selva y la Reina de Castilla is a work in progress of several different components which interact here within the existing architectural conditions of the exhibition space. The parcours of this presentation has its center in the nave containing the four ship models at a scale of 1:20 of one Coca, two caravels, the Pinta and the Niña, beside the vessel Santa María.
Those ship models signify through their straightforward, magnificent manufacturing, the nautical technology and engineering at the time of the Discovery of the Américas. The Santa María, originally built from the wood of Cantabrian forests, emphasizes the great maritime culture of this rough coast.
