This is a famous set of tiles on the outer wall of San Pedro’s church in Seville, depicting people suffering in purgatory so they can eventually get into heaven. I love the way that nobody seems to be in real torment; some appear irritated while others merely look bemused, as if they were at a rather peculiar cocktail party, naked, and flames happened to break out. Anyway, the artist of this particular work liked to use a small bird as his signature, and he tucked one into this busy scene. Legend has it that if you can spot this bird, you’ll soon be married, IF you want to be. Don’t worry, if you’re NOT in the matrimonial market, you won’t find yourself marching down the aisle just because you happened to spot the bird. Still looking? Hint: The bird is not where you think.
