Around that time, the National Museum of Anthropology was being established in Madrid.

The museum was headed by Dr. Pedro González Velasco.

The remains would be part of Dr. Velasco’s collection and would be displayed forever in his museum.

Sadly, the giant of Extremadura didn’t enjoy his life annuity for long.

Today, his large skeleton is displayed at the National Museum of Anthropology in Madrid, in addition to a plaster cast of his body made by Dr. Velasco.
