About the Artwork

The teeth from a hanged man are most efficient for bewitching; without such an ingredient one cannot do anything good. Pity that common people would believe such nonsense.


Los dientes de ahorcado son eficacísimos para los echizos; sin este ingrediente no se hace cosa de probecho. Lástima es que el vulgo crea tales desatinos.
