A night in Seville

This gorgeous paper cut is called a night in Seville. The entire image is hand-cut from a single sheet of paper and it has been mounted on a beautiful Indian cotton rag paper.
Just a quick fact about Flamenco music, it is believed to have originated in the early 19th century from the canto hondo (which translates to deep song) of Andalusia, a highly emotional and tragic type of song accompanied by a guitar. By the mid19th century Flamenco had become a generally popular entertainment form, and it subsequently flourished. In my opinion, one of the most intense and passionate dancing styles there are, truly beautiful!
