The Bond Latin Gallery began working with Alejandro Santiago in 1989 and recognizing the great talent of the artist set aside some of the best of his works from the different periods and mediums.
Alejandro’s prototypes for the project “2501 Migrants” were first created in 2000, long before the creation of the first images of the “2501 Migrants” project.
At this time Alejandro created 7 images in clay. Two were broken and only 5 survived. These 7 works were hand crafted by Alejandro and low fired, giving them a different earthier look.
The Bond Latin Gallery kept two of these original prototypes, including the very first piece Alejandro created.
