That was an interesting exercise in racial profiling. RetroHappy Cinco De Mayo to you!I brought cajeta de leche con platano for the pot luck lunch.
I remember all of the paintings!!My History public textbooks were full of them, I was often puzzled and amazed at how many Castas there were listed:Peninsular,Indio,Negro,Chino, Castizo, Meztizo, Albino, Tornaatras, mulato, lobo, coyote, and so many more! And of course a painting for each of them...Thank you for remembering us folks from the Spanish Main :D
There's so much to be read about cultural relations and views in all those paintings. I'm really enjoying examining them!
@Retro, YUM!@Miss Honnette, I was quickly blogging before going to work so I could only add so many. I may just have to add more, they're so gorgeous.@Alice, Not only are they gorgeous but they give much food for thought. I find them so interesting!
