A bronze statue on stone pedestal created ​​by sculptor Aniceto Marinas and inaugurated on 2nd October 1897 in the midst of the celebrations organized in this town due to this event.

The costs incurred for its construction were paid by (in addition to the Queen Regent, who contributed 2,500 pesetas) both public institutions and many citizens of Zumarraga who contributed selflessly.

It figuratively represents the Catholic man and colonizer in their heyday, defeating an idol (he is crushing a mask with his foot).
