La Tortura

You can't really see it here, but the text on the figure in front is a translation of the Spanish text of a song by the incredibly talented Columbian singer, songwriter, musician and all-round rock chick Shakira, whose work I admire a lot. It's oil paint with a hint of gold metallic finish and some brocade also.

90x30cm, oil on canvas and other media.

It's big too. 3 feet by 2 feet.
