The Lady of Elche, a remarkable stone bust from the 5th or 4th century BC, exhibited at the National Archaeological Museum of Spain in Madrid, is a masterpiece of the Iberian art. The archaeologist Pierre Rouillard, with a team composed of archaeologists, a geologist and a geomatics engineer, recounts its story and tries to found its identity, a goddess or a princess, through the search for its birthplace, the quarries of the El Ferriol valley near Alicante, and the matter in which it has been sculpted, a soft limestone.
