About the Artwork

Deadly abuse in early education. To bring up a child to fear a bogey-man more than its own father, and force it to be afraid of something that does not exist.


Abuso funesto de la primera educación. Hacer que un niño tenga más miedo al Coco que a su padre, y obligarle a temer lo que no existe.
