About the Artwork

See here a bitter quarrel about which of the two is more of a witch. Who would have said that the Blear-eyed and the Curly-haired would pull out one another’s hair in such a way. Friendship is the child of virtue. Fiendish people may be accomplices but not friends.


Ve aquí una pelotera cruel sobre quál es más bruja de las dos. ¿Quién diría que la Petiñosa y la Crespa se repelaran así? La amistad es hija de la virtud. Los malbados pueden ser cómplices, pero amigos no.
