Topics from the mines

Through the years, Ibáñez always comes back to the topics of the mines. This is because he descends from miners, and because his home town, Oruro, is founded in an area of great discoveries of metal in the ground. He could accompany the workers into the mines, where he painted the special atmosphere and the working miners.
