A intangible legacy

Yesterday the Fiesta or the Patios in Cordova were inscribed on UNESCO’s Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity, it represents an important endorsement of the culture and tradition of my city, and a publicity push quite remarkable.

To illustrate, the local newspaper El Dia de Córdoba uses four of my sketches in a chronicle about the patios in Cordova.

One of the drawings accompanying this article is a old palace in the historical center of Cordova.

This is a video with the "making of" of one of the drawings.
