Trabajando con mis manos

A través del arte reflejamos nuestros pensamientos, nuestra forma de ser, nuestras esperanzas. Con él nos desnudamos por dentro y a la vez damos una parte de nosotros mismos que no somos capaces de expresar con palabras.

Como dijo George Bernard Shaw.... "Los espejos se emplean para verse la cara; el arte para verse el alma".

La Biznaga Malagueña

La biznaga no es una flor natural nacida así de una planta. Es una composición hecha con jazmines ensartados uno a uno en un armazón (este sí es de una planta natural) que tiene muchos pinchos.

En cada uno de esos pinchos se introduce un jazmín. Este es un trabajo que se hace en las tardes de verano. Los jazmines se recogen cuando aún están cerrados para que sea más fácil rellenar el armazón de la biznaga.

Y al caer la tarde los jazmines se van abriendo y el conjunto va tomando la forma de una bola con un olor impresionante.

La biznaga es un símbolo relacionado con la ciudad de Málaga, donde gracias a la herencia de los árabes, y al clima templado, abundan los jazmines. Es raro que una casa malagueña que tenga un jardín, un patio, e incluso un balcón, no tenga un jazmín que lo decore y perfume.

Los biznagueros perfuman las calles de Málaga

En las noches de verano es muy habitual encontrarse por las calles y paseos a algunos hombres ataviados con el traje típico y con una penca (a la que le han quitado las espinas) en la mano, en la que llevan clavadas un puñado de biznagas para venderlas y que van dejando las calles impregnadas de olor a jazmín a su paso.
