El Rio Debajo del Rio

  • El Rio Debajo del Rio
    The river beneath the river
  • A minicomic of two panels, inspired by a chapter in the book Women Who Run with the Wolves by Clarissa Pinkola Estés
    I used traditional printmaking techniques: first panel - drypoint needle, second - etching and aquatinta;printed on 28,5 x 37,5 cm each // 2011

    It tells the story of the archetypal wise woman (who lives in all women) finding herself piece by piece, bone by bone, and then chanting her soul back into a wild and joyful whole again.
