About the Artwork

Where is this hellish, howling horde going to, through the air, in the darkness of night? If it were daytime, it would be quite different, and they could be brought down by shotguns. But since it is night, nobody can see them.


¿A donde irá esta caterba infernal dando aullidos por el aire, entre las tinieblas de la noche? Aun si fuera de día ya era otra cosa y a fuerza de escopetazos caería al suelo toda la gorullada, pero como es de noche nadie los ve.
