Black Women
This work is a tribute to all black women on the planet, especially those who with their courage and decision decided to change the world through their actions and thoughts to make it more just, although many times these lead to retaliation against them and their families.

Aretha Franklin
Aretha Louise Franklin (March 25, 1942 – August 16, 2018) was an American singer, songwriter, actress, pianist, and civil rights activist. Franklin began her career as a child singing gospel at New Bethel Baptist Church in Detroit, Michigan, where her father C. L. Franklin was a minister. By the end of the 1960s, Aretha Franklin had come to be known as the "Queen of Soul". She was a female soul star, which she used to influence the struggle for ethnic rights and female liberation in the United States.
Franklin recorded 112 charted singles on Billboard, including 77 Hot 100 entries, 17 top-ten pop singles, 100 R&B entries, and 20 number-one R&B singles. She won 18 Grammy Awards, including the first eight awards given for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance (1968–1975). Franklin is one of the best-selling music artists of all time, having sold more than 75 million records worldwide.
In 1987, she became the first woman to enter the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
In the cinema, it participated in the films The Blues Brothers (1980) and Blues Brothers 2000 (1998).
In 2005, Aretha Franklin received the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
In 2009, Aretha Franklin was one of the leading artists in the inauguration of Barack Obama’s presidency.
On August 13, 2018, it was announced that she was seriously ill at her home near Detroit. He finally died on August 16, 2018 due to advanced pancreatic cancer.
The Pulitzer Prize jury in 2019 awarded Franklin a posthumous special citation "for her indelible contribution to American music and culture for more than five decades".


To send the piece, first the piece is wrapped with a thin layer of acid-free paper, then it is covered with bubble wrap so that the piece is highly protected. At the end of these two packaging processes, I build a box exclusively for the work, with a very thick cardboard capable of withstanding possible incidents in transport and that the work reaches your hands in perfect condition.

Measurements of the piece: 54 x 14 x 12 cm.
