About the Artwork

The broom is one of the witches’ most necessary tools. For not only are they very good sweepers, as the stories tell, but occasionally they change the broom into a mule on which they ride so fast that not even the devil could catch up with them.


La escoba es uno de los utensilios más necesarios a las brujas porque ademas de ser ellas grandes barrenderas, como consta por las istorias, tal bez conbierten la escoba en mula de paso y van con ella que el Diablo no las alcanzara.
