Juan Miguel Quiñones is one of the young contemporary Spanish sculptors who works with marble, recovering techniques that have been valued in ancient times, but have now disappeared.

The sculptures are made with the ancient hard stone technique, a Renaissance technique at its peak during the later years of this era. The work consists of the inlay of semiprecious stones within the marble, as well as, the so-called polychrome tableroes of the great European palace tables.

The nobleness of the materials of the sculptures of Quiñones contrasts with the sentience and surroundings of the objects represented in this infancy, such as; iced lollies or toys. The outlines seem to be those of children’s drawings; simplifying shapes and volumes to focus on the essence represented by them.
