"Madama de las Munecas" evolved from this profound family legacy, with every soft sculpture whispering stories that have traversed time and space. These gitanas/sculptures are not mere toys but symbols of a shared humanity and a testament to a craft that connects us all, echoing a tale of love, resilience, and creativity that has survived generations.
