El més petit de tots

This figure was created by the sculptor Miquel Paredes i Fonollà (1901-1980) for the Comissariat de Propaganda de la Generalitat de Catalunya in 1937 as a symbol of the revolution and resistance of the Catalan people against fascism. It is of a child soldier who calls the fight against the rebels, with the name "El més petit de tots".
There was also a song (sheet music illustration by Lola Anglada), plus the figure could be used as a hood ornament (as shown in top image).
