In a heartfelt homage to the enduring spirit of women, artist David de la Mano unveils his latest creation, the “Scar” mural, gracing the walls of The House of Women “Clara Campoamor” in Salamanca. Inspired by the moving verses of Louise Glück’s poem “Dress,” the mural stands as a tribute to the strength and beauty found within life’s challenges.

Nestled in the heart of Salamanca, the mural serves as a visual testament to the journey of healing and self-discovery. With his distinct style marked by intricate linework and emotive symbolism, dela Mano breathes life into Glück’s evocative words, crafting a narrative that speaks to the resilience of the human spirit.

My soul dried up.
Like a soul thrown into the fire,
but not completely
not until annihilation. Thirsty,
went ahead. twitchy,
not because of loneliness but because of mistrust,
the result of violence.

The spirit, invited to leave the body,
to be exposed for a moment,
trembling, like before
of your surrender to the divine;
The spirit was seduced, due to its loneliness,
for the promise of grace.
How are you going to trust again
in the love of another being?

My soul withered and shrank.
The body became too much of a dress big for her.
And when I regained hope,
It was a completely different hope.

Louise Glück (1943-2023) USA
