La Reina Invierna means Winter Queen in spanish. The Winter Queen stalks the nights of winter, dressed in icicles, and deadly mist. She is an old woman who mourns for the summer of her life, when she was young and beautiful. At the end of the winter, she will die, slowly, and be (also slowly) reborn as a young sprite, who in turn, will go through the same process. At the end's of their lives, each Winter Queen acts differently, however, most freeze the land in their bitterness and drift from place to place looking for vengeance, bone-numbing cold following in her wake. Made in the Winter of 08. oil paint.
