PLATERO AND I. Tribute to Juan Ramón Jiménez best work.

Posted on


“Platero is small, fluffy, soft; so soft on the outside that one would say he is all cotton, that he carries no bones. Only the jet-dark mirrors of his eyes are hard as two scarabs of black crystal.”

With this descriptive, magical words begins “Platero and I,”, the beautiful book from the spanish awarded Nobel prize in literature 1956.

Platero is a little donkey, main character of Juan Ramón Jiménez’s most popular works.

I try to recreate my own version of this donkey, when he was a young foal, reflecting the contemplative, kind-hearted Platero’s innocence.
