About the Artwork

He is being sent off on an important errand and wants to leave half-anointed. Even among witches there are some who are giddy, impatient, thoughtless, without a bit of judgment. Everywhere it is the same.


Le embían a un recado de importancia y quiere irse a medio untar. Entre los brujos los hay tanbién troneras, precipitados, botarates, sin pizca de juicio: todo el mundo es país.
