In the soul of the Sevillian woman, Greco-Roman classicism, Andalusia, and the art of flamenco, which emerged from the gypsy culture in Triana, converge.
In the foreground is the figure of a young brunette woman partially covered by a Manila shawl, embroidered in white and with a naked back. Her head is inclined to the left, her face is in profile and her hair is tied back, adorned with a golden earring in the style of flamenco. She looks at the wildflowers she is holding in her left hand.
In the background, at the bottom right, a grey stone draws a right angle in the form of a symbolic window.
In the background, a light blue sky of dissipated clouds and the Triana Bridge over the Guadalquivir River, linking the two banks of the city of Seville, capital of Andalusia, southern region of Spain, cultural emporium through the centuries. Triana is the cradle of Flamenco and Bullfighting art.
