A Denia sculpture paying tribute to victims of the COVID-19 pandemic has been vandalised.

The heart-shaped ‘Corozones’ by local sculptor, Modesto Mari, was unveiled in the city’s Plaza de la Constitucion last October.

The work has now been damaged with graffiti scrawled on it.

Mari said that ‘Corozones’ symbolised two embracing silhouettes that form a single human body.

The adjoining plaque says that the heart is in ‘memory of the victims as well as brave and generous groups and citizens who beat like a single heart in moving forward’.

The unwanted lettering will be difficult to remove as it has been chipped into the sandstone structure.

May be an image of outdoors and brick wall

Modesto Mari is now weighing up options as to what kind of repair work can be undertaken.

There is no news about police investigations to catch whoever committed the vandalism
