About the Artwork

And she is right in doing so . . . that God may give her luck, and keep her free of harm and from surgeons and constables; so that she may become as skillful and smart and as good a jack-of-all-trades as her mother (be she blessed) was.


Y hace muy bien, para que Dios le de fortuna y la libre de mal y de cirujanos y alguaciles y llegue a ser tan diestra, tan despejada y tan para todo como su madre, que en gloria esté.
