A montage showing nine objects which had been sent to trapped miner Edison Pena by his family and friends, including a bible and a picture of his idol Elvis Presley. Not long before his rescue, Edison sent these personal items back up to the surface.
The parcels were delivered through a narrow tube - a Paloma - that acted as a lifeline, allowing food, water and regular contact between families and their trapped loved ones.
Edison was one of 33 miners trapped underground for 69 days at the San Jose mine after a collapse on 05/08/2010.
