"La Gata y sus Gatitos" Plate

In the piece La Gata y sus Gatitos I detail two memories combined. The memories I combined are of Casita Typicas- which are a mini figurine houses that are hung on the wall- and a time I fed baby cats cheese balls. The illustration depicts a mama cat and her four babies looking out over the top of a house protectively. The house is modeled after a Casita Typica, with a terracotta roof and decorative pillars. The symbolism of this piece goes deeper: there are five people in my immediate family, so five cats represent them. The spheres of the earth are also featured: birds are the sky, cats are the land, and fish are the sea.
