About the Artwork

The group of witches who serve as a pedestal to this stylish fool is more of an ornament than a need. There are heads so swollen with inflammable gas that they can fly without being helped by a balloon or by witches.


El grupo de brujas que sirbe de peana a la petrimetra más que necesidad es adorno. Hay cabezas tan llenas de gas inflamable que no necesitan para volar ni globo ni brujas.
