« Doves on 100-peso coins (palomas en monedas de cien): Metal handicrafts were very popular in the jails and concentration camps, especially, the production of medallions and rings. The main raw materials for this work consisted of coins, spoons and all sorts of metal containers. With a hammer or similar tool, the craftsmen pounded the object, transforming it into a thin metal disc. Finally, these were cut and hammered until obtaining the desired shape. On the medallions, we would etch the peace symbol: Picasso's dove. »
