- Sculpture of calamine, from the Second Half of the 19th century, with a bath of silvered copper by electroplating of which only small remains remain.
- The figure is the Sacred Heart of Jesus, with the left hand on his chest and the right hand down with the palm facing out. His head is bent forward.
- The sculptor's work for this figure is very good, obtaining a magnificent result, despite the poor quality of the execution of this one.
- The calamine figure has a thick copper coating and a silver overlay. On top of this, it was given a layer of silver gloss paint. Due to the wear and tear produced by time, the copper has been seen in the most exposed areas. A mixture of the two plates can be seen, in the less exposed areas, leaving a very attractive final result, which gives it an enriching patina.
