Original title: Acariño Galaico (de barro)

The third part of the Tríptico Elemental, a Spanish trilogy. With this series of short movies, the director intends to move past the status of the documentary imagery. Val del Omar proposes a mythical exploration of his country, through three different regions: Andalusia, Castile and Galicia. The director draws inspiration from his country’s artistic traditions, incorporating culture and art history.

Galician Caress (Of Clay) presents the works of a sculptor Arturo Baltar, represented in a sort of a live sculpture. This film was restored in 1995 by Javier Codesal for Filmoteca de Andalucia.
