Julia Pastrana by mebdalira Julia Pastrana by mebdalira
Preparing herself before the act...this is julia Pastrana, an extraordinary woman born in the middle of the 19th century , it was very shocking and delightful when I found this weird specimen, born in Mexico, working in a freak circus show, and suffering a painful marriage,,,

she's not jus a bearded woman but an ape woman... you can find more info on google if you're interested

(Unfinishe version) I didn't like too much the final version, done some month ago

Julia Pastrana tiene una historia muy interesante,pero realmente triste,su hipertricosis opacaba su talento de artista,una mujer extraordinaria y orgullosamente mexicana
te quedo muy bien el dibujo,se ve chida

Wow! I am currently doing a research paper on Julia Pastrana and this just captures her feelings so well and not many things do that at all and just treat her like a freak. Lovely work!

Interesante. Estaba ojeando un viejo periódico y venía una nota de ella en la sección cultural, me puse a buscar más porque esa hoja del periódico estaba rota y mira, encuentro que hasta un tributo le han hecho.
