Español:

Tamaño A4. acuarela, rotulador fino. La Semana Santa en Conil me tiene vulnerable a su ambiente hechicero y también aterrorizada.

En aquel momento, cuando lo dibujé, me daba la fuerte impresión que la gente estaba celebrando la reciente muerte de un tío que no cayó bien al establishment.

Si Jesús mirara hacia abajo en ese momento, no sé si realmente le encantara la imagen, y el festejo de su muerte causada por una tortura, durante la cual la gente le miraba y no se atrevía a protestar.

Lo adverso no interesa, hay que acallarlo como sea.

Y qué mejor método para la iglesia católica antaño y no tan antaño haber presionado y torturado a tanta gente para que se vuelvan católicos.

Se puede ver el resultado: Los descendientes tenemos los ojos mojados en los momentos cuando salimos de la iglesia con mucho pompo con el ataúd imaginario. Mojados los ojos y atados de invisibles e inexplicables vendas y lazos. 

 

English:

Water colour, fine pen. A4.

The easter week in Spain is called la Semana Santa, the Holy Week. The Semana Santa  in Conil has me vulnerable to its sorcerer environment, and also terrified.

At that hour, when I drew it , I had the strong impression that people were celebrating the recent death of a guy who had not sat  well with the establishment. If the soul of Jesus looked down at the imitation of carrying his dead body about, I don´t know if  he really would love the image of flocking crowds and the celebration of his death by torture, during which people had watched him die and did not dare to protest.

Rebellion is a problem, and better silence it somehow.

And what better method for the establishment of the Catholic Church having used methods of oppression and torture to convert the people, during centuries.

See the result: We descendants have wet eyes at times when we walk out of the church  with the coffin and the imaginary recently died Jesus inside.

Wet through tears of emotion and invisibly tied by unexplained bandages.
