Artist's description:

This is an original ink drawing inspired by the Torre de la Cautiva, or The Captive Woman's Tower, in the Alhambra. According to popular legend, this is where Isabel de Solís was imprisoned after being captured during battle between the Christian and Muslim populations of Granada. The king, Muley Hacén, fell head over heels for Isabel, who was later to become known as Zoraya the sultan following her conversion to Islam and subsequent marriage to the king. However, powerful members of the royal family (namely Aixa, the king's wife and mother to the heir to the throne) objected to the marriage and Zoraya's promotion to number one wife, and the king was forced to abdicate the throne. From the outside this tower is just like any other: plain, simple and ordinary. But the interior is breathtakingly beautiful! Just another example in life of how appearances can be deceiving.

Signed by me on the front in ink at the time of completion.
Signed, dated and titled on the back in ink.
Sent with a certificate of authenticity signed and dated by me.

I carefully wrap all my artwork to keep it safe during transit. This drawing will be attached to a flyweight stiffener with corner protectors on all 4 corners, sealed inside an acid-free cello sleeve, gift-wrapped and sent flat inside a board-backed envelope. If you'd like to include a short message inside the package I'll happily do that for you; just let me know when you order!

This painting will be sent from Spain sign-for and tracked via Correos (the Spanish postal service).
