“I am like a desert owl, like an owl among the ruins.
I lie awake; I have become like a bird alone on a roof.
All day long my enemies taunt me;
those who rail against me use my name as a curse.
For I eat ashes as my food and mingle my drink with tears”—Psalm 102:6-9
My latest art purchase for only R8! I’ve tried to find out about this crying queen, who appears to be Spanish but to no avail.
*edit turns out Isabella II was the only female monarch of Spain. Maybe the lady in my picture is someone else. *shrug* oh well. it’s pretty! :)
**EDIT: A follower of my blog enlightened me as to the origin of this image. Turns out this is a photograph of La Macarena, Our Hope. The people call her the most beautiful Virgin of Seville and of Spain. (source) Thank you Imar!
