María Bárbola

María Bárbola entered the palace the year the infanta was born and always accompanied her in her entourage. It is the dwarf we see on the right of the picture.

I imagined María’s life difficult, burdened with ridicule from the whole court that she had to endure given her “inferior” status. I did not want any element to stand out in the figure of the dwarf, but I wanted to reflect in the simplicity of the elements that make up her situation within the court.
