This figure is one of the 23 "gegants" (giants) of the Corpus in Valencia
The "gegants" are very old figures. In 1588, these giants were four couples, symbolizing the Eucharist adherence to the four
Continents then known. Also three pairs of "nanos" (dwarves) or big heads to signify that
high and low alike worshiped the Lord.
