About the Artwork

There are men whose faces are the most obscene part of their bodies; those who have such an unsightly and ridiculous face should put it in their breeches.


Hay hombres cuya cara es lo mas indecente de todo su cuerpo y sería bien que los que la tienen tan desgraciada y ridícula se la metieran en los calzones.
