About the Artwork

A man and a woman tied together with a rope, struggling to set themselves free and crying for somebody to untie them quickly? Either I am mistaken, or they are two people who were forced to marry.


¿Un hombre y una muger atados con sogas, forcejeando por soltarse y gritando que los desaten a toda prisa? O yo me equivoco, o son dos casados por fuerza.
