A SCULPTURE of former Spanish dictator Francisco Franco has caused a stir at a contemporary art fair in Madrid.

Always Franco depicts the general wearing a green uniform and dark sunglasses with his knees bent inside a drinks fridge.

“It represents the idea that in Spain people are keeping the image of Franco alive. We don’t stop talking about him, debating him. And a fridge is where things are kept alive and fresh,” creator Eugenio Merino said at the ARCO art fair.
