In the soul of a Sevillian woman flows Greco-Roman classicism, Andalusian and Flamenco Art arising from the gypsy culture in Triana.

 

The figure of a dark young woman partially covered with a Manila shawl, embroidered in white and bare backed occupies the foreground. Head turned to the left, face profile and hair swept up, adorned with a Flamenco style gold pendent. She directs her gaze to some wild flowers that she holds in her left hand.

 

In the lower right side of the background, a gray stone forms a straight angle, a symbolic window.

 

In the back, a clear blue cloudless sky and the Triana Bridge over the Guadalquivir river, joining the two sides of the city of Seville, capital of Andalusia, Southern region of Spain, cultural emporium through the centuries. Triana is the cradle of Flamenco Art and the Art of Bullfighting.
