A large-scale tryptic. It is divided into two lateral and one larger central panel, extolling the customs and religious feeling of the Basque people. It commemorates the dramatic storm caused by the galerna (north-westerly wind) of 20 April 1878 known as the “Galerna of Holy Saturday”, which cost the lives of 255 Basque and Cantabrian sailors.
