La Vella Quaresma Silvia Sáez´s project
The illustrator Silvia Sáez, graduated in graphic design and illustration has made a representation of the "Vella Quaresma" for Escoda.
The tradition is born in the popular culture of Catalunya and she is the graphic representation of Lent, in the calendar form. The image has distinctive features: she has seven legs, one for each week and cod fishes. Each week, starting from Sunday after Ash Wednesday, she tears of a leg. Each leg represents the total weeks that remain before arriving at Easter Week.
