Description

This Weeper is part of some rites and rituals of life and death, included in Oneness and Beings, inspired in the Mediterranean tradition of having them in funeral crying and screaming as part of the rite. It's a work for old women, and the more weepers a funeral have the most dear was the person's funeral. Mix of faith and pagan, prey and shaman rite, which still exists.

This photograph is the unique proof of author, of the limited edition of 5/5, being printed in Baryta Harman/Hahnemühle paper 350grs, signed, numbered as P/A and dated 2010 by the author.
