With another Spanish holiday looming, I’ve been in email conversation with my friend Mercedes, who also plays SL.
We got into conversation about the mantilla, a religious head covering for Spanish women, held in place with a comb called a peineta.
She has one that she wears to church and sometimes at funerals, and was telling me (much as photographers and artists use the ‘taboo’ of the hijab in their work to ‘break boundaries’) that Spanish artists have utilised the mantilla with the nude in their work.
A little bit of research later…
A mantilla is available on the Marketplace, priced at L$250, if anyone should wish to follow Mercedes’, and some artists, lead on this.
