EL TAMBOR (The Drum) #29 / She Bangs the Drum by artist Emma Mount
Oil on wood panel, 8” x 10”
She is named after the Stone Roses love song, but also as a woman, and the mother of a daughter, I wanted her to be symbolic of female empowerment.
Also shown here is the original Don Clemente Gallo card for EL TAMBOR.
The riddle associated with this image:
No te arruges, cuero viejo, que te quiero pa' tambor.
Don't you wrinkle, dear old leather, that I want you for a drum.
