ENGLISH
If you do not know it, Manny is the name of the mammouth of the film “Ice Age”.

***
This immense stone mammoth was an initiative of Norbert Font i Sagué, geologist, speleologist and writer. During this period, the Junta de Ciències Naturals (Board of Natural Sciences) was being consolidated, and wished to reproduce in stone all of the great species that had disappeared. The mammoth was built according to a model by the sculptor Miquel Dalmau.

Norbert Font i Sagué was born and died in Barcelona (1874-1910). He was responsible for introducing speleology to Catalonia and, sponsored by the Ramblers Centre (Centre Excursionista de Catalunya) conducted a survey that allowed him to establish the Speleological Catalogue of Catalonia.

In 1904 he took up the post of Geology Professor of the Catalan University Studies and published a course in dynamic geology applied to Catalonia.

As a writer, he obtained awards at the Poetry Competition of Barcelona (Jocs Florals de Barcelona), in 1894 with The Stone Crosses of Catalonia (Les creus de pedra a Catalunya) and in 1897 with Determination of the Natural and Historic Regions of Catalonia (Determinació de les comarques naturals i històriques de Catalunya), among others.

Para quien no lo sepa, Manny es el nombre del mamut de la película "La Edad de Hielo".

Este inmenso mamut de piedra fue colocado por iniciativa del científico Norbert Font i Sagué, geólogo, espeleólogo y escritor. En aquella época se potenciaba la Junta de Ciències Naturals y se quería reproducir en piedra todas las grandes especies desaparecidas. El mamut fue construído según una maqueta del escultor Miquel Dalmau.

Norbert Font i Sagué nació y murió en Barcelona (1874-1910). Fue el introductor de la espeleología en Cataluña y con el patrocinio del Centre Excursionista de Catalunya realizó una encuesta que le permitió elaborar el Catàleg espeleològic de Catalunya.

En 1904 ejerció la cátedra de geología de los Estudios Universitarios Catalanes y publicó un curso de geología dinámica aplicado a Cataluña.

Como escritor, obtuvo premios en los Juegos Florales de Barcelona: en 1894 con Les creus de pedra a Catalunya y en 1897 con Determinació de les comarques naturals i històriques de Catalunya, entre otros premios.

The flesh was putting up a brave dialogue. 
I was willing to play the game. 
Stunned, shocked, pleasantly sore 
basking in heat of silk throat, 

I asked the needles to go ahead 
and stitch the wounds without loss of blood. 
Wasps were waiting to light the candles, 
so that they can attack the pink skin. 

The fruit bats were hanging upside down; 
time for fellatio. A boundary was submerged 
in deluge of anger. It was a white night 
for an ice cream cone. God bless the queen.
