Mudejar and Azul tiling

Mudejar at its best

It is an overpowering feeling to see such abundance of patterns,  yet there is order in that apparent caos.

Exentric statue

Musico

I liked this statue for its comical eccentricity, including the dog turd he is steping on

Matador!

When I was very young, my uncle Cesar would take me to the ‘Corrida de Toros’, so I have a rather imaginary vision of the event.

I bought the photo above in Seville, at the door of the Maestranza, the mythical bull ring, where a few years earlier we viewed a ‘corrida’ that left me rather deflated. I did not like or understand the picador’s fierce behaviour, lancing the bull repeatedly.

What I remember of a good corrida is depicted fully in the photograph above: the courage and the elegant pose of the matador, the size and determination of the bull, its head reminiscent of  Picasso’s Tauromaquia.

Notice also the bull’s tail wrapped around the impeccable matador, the hoof and the foot are touching.

Talking about Chris and Christianity: I say the man above, a market seller, in such a pose that it almost mimicked the image of Christ on the cross, but with a benevolent look on him.

 

Plaza España

La Plaza de España

La Plaza de España

The wide open squares of Spanish cities, reflecting the heat of the southern territory. Moorish influence everywhere.
