A roman matron is about to get some gladiator sweat, which supposedly had aphrodisiac and beauty properties. He's a Thracian gladiator, as we can see by the helmet on the ground and the rest of his panoply.
Una matrona romana se dispone a conseguir un poco de sudor de gladiador, que supuestamente tenía propiedades afrodisíacas y de belleza. Se trata de un gladiador tracio, como podemos deducir por el casco en el suelo y el resto de su panoplia.
I have always painted; I had no choice, so to speak.
After more than twelve years making historical illustration for different media in several countries, I feel like a time traveler (with a lot of books and brushes in my backpack) who never stops discovering and learning, and who has the privileged possibility to open for others some kind of illustrated window to the past.
I also have had the opportunity to illustrate many other types of stories, tales, novels (what’s better than a good story?), and I'm exploring new fields to continue doing so bigger and better.
