El Gos Blau de St Roc

St Roch's Blue Dog (Near the Barcelona's cathedral)

Many years ago, Saint Roch's sculpture must be restored. The restorer asked the commission in charge of this how the dog should be painted.
The ironic answer was: if it seems to you right, painted it blue.
And the restorer painted it blue.
Or he had no sense of humor ... or he had an exaggerated sense of humor !

I think this is a valid image and history for ST
Happy ST

Segons el llibre de 1961 "Carrers de Barcelona," d'en Josep Mª Espinàs "En una ocasió va haver de ser restaurada (la escultura de St Roc), i l'artista va preguntar a la comissió de quin color havia de pintar el gos. La irònica resposta va ésser. "Home, si us sembla podeu pintar-lo de color blau cel!". Amb un un sentit de l'humor nul o excessiu, el pintor va pintar el gos de color blau" . M'ha semblat una imatge adient per un ST.
