Justo Gallego Martinez
Artist - Justo Gallego Martinez
Title - Untitled
Location - Mejorada del Campo, Spain
Justo Gallego Martinez was a Spanish monk who was forced to leave his order after being taken ill. His radically individualistic cathedral was built without sanction from the local government, let alone the Catholic Church. At over 100 feet high he has managed this remarkable accomplishment with some assistance from nephews and with revenues from his farmland as well as private donations.
