Indalo Symbol

 

Indalo is human figure which served as a lucky talisman, and which conferred health and love to the owner of the figure.

Its origin goes back to prehistoric time, as Indalos have found at the cave "Cueva de los Letreros" on the hill of Maimun, Velez Blanco. The figure has the shape of a little man holding an arch. If we take into account that the paintings in that cave are all from Neolithic times, we should agree that the Indalo is also from prehistoric times. The primitive residence of the province adopted the indalo, so that as time passed, it become the symbol of this Area.

During those ancient times, the fisherman in the province used to have the symbol on their houses facades before going into the sea, in order to be protected against storms and to get plenty of fish. A theory about its origin, which is supported by some archaeologists, is that it was a prehistoric "Iberian" leader, and that he used to hold the rainbow between his open arms presumably this was the symbol on the union between man and the natural elements.
