DD33 – The true Shrove Tuesday


On skulls like round rocks rest a series of carnival masks that form a barrier between Jesus praying (watch his dance move!), three cacti (the trinity of the desert) and a drunk who claims to be celebrating Jesus’ fast but in the most contradictory way imaginable. The masks Delhez used here were actually supposed to serve for another engraving in this series, namely DD10, an engraving that was rejected where they were replaced by noses. The masks came into the hands of the young children of Delhez and he could only recover them in a battered state. For that reason, the masks in this engraving have a somewhat devilish expression.


This work was made in Chacras de Coria (Argentina) between the 16th of January 1953 and the 12th of January 1956. We have two prints of this work. One of them is embedded in a passe-partout the other one not. When buying please indicate which one you like to have.
