About the Artwork

He who doesn’t think of the instability of Fortune sleeps calmly, surrounded by dangers. He doesn’t know how to avoid the harm threatening him, and there is no misfortune which will not overtake him.


El que no reflexiona sobre la instabilidad de la fortuna duerme tranquilo rodeado de peligros: ni sabe evitar el daño que hamenaza, ni hay desgracia que no le sorprenda.
