The apse of the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Arantzazu is a fine mural in wood carved by the Spanish abstractionist artist Lucio Muñoz (1929-1998) in the year 1962. Muñoz borrows elements from the Gipuzkoan countryside and sees his work as a movement towards peace that is mediated to the Basque people through Our Lady of Arantzazu. The mural gives the Sanctuary a very earthy atmosphere.
