The impossible love of Nuredduna

A immersive virtual experience based on the Nuredduna statue in Palma de Mallorca, Spain set deep in the ocean and brought to life by a flock of seagulls.

The legend of Nuredduna was an invention of the Pollensa poet Miquel Costa i Llobera and a statue in her image can be found in Palma de Mallorca in Spain. The statue was created by Remigia Caubet González it is located near the Palacio de Congresos in Palma. Cast in bronze it represents Nuredduna pictured as a young sad woman, walking in front of the wind with her eyes downcast and a lyre in her right hand.

She is the protagonist of the epic poem entitled “La deixa del geni grec” (“The legacy of the Greek genius”) which was written in 1900 in Pollense. The term Nuredduna was coined by Costa y Llobera himself based on the word “nur”, whose meaning in the ancient languages ​​of the East is associated with fire.
