About this work

This work is about masculinity and the frustration it can produce. A man’s obligation to be strong, brave, determined. The obligation not to have feelings, not to depend on anyone, to be able to take care of oneself and others… What is expected of a man kills many men.

Big red ears are a symbol of goodness. Surely a boy who was insulted as a child for being different, or for having big ears for example, has become a good man, capable of understanding the suffering of others.

In Spanish, the term «Palomo» is used as a derogatory term for homosexuals, and «Tener pluma» (To have feathers) means to be effeminate in behaviour or dress. The birds here are a symbol of both repression and freedom.
