The Tyrant by GENZOMAN The Tyrant by GENZOMAN
Hi there guys! this is another version of La Tirana (the tyrant) based in one of the stories of my land. I draw this version while I was waiting for a flight on Mexico city, heading to do a conference in Guanajuato, I spent all night on the airport, drinking coffee and feeling like Tom Hanks in The Terminal. It was a very productive time :D

I draw her previously I hope you like it :)
La Tirana by GENZOMAN

PSCS3/bamboo/5hours/ Music : La conquistada - Los Jaivas…

Letīs wikiattack!

the origin of the story dates back to 1535, when according to legend, Diego de Almagro in their journey towards the discovery of Chile from Cuzco had in his entourage to a captive Incan prince named Huillac Huma and was the last priest of the cult of Inti. Beside him was his beautiful daughter named Ņusta Huillac.

When the army was near the present town of Pica (in the middle of the desert of tarapaca), many prisoners Incas fled to the Pampa del tamarugo, including Ņusta Huillac and father. Refugees in the forests of mesquite, Ņusta Huillac organized a rebellion to restore the power of his nation, becoming much feared by his enemies who called as "La Tirana del Tamarugal" (The Tyrant of the Tamarugoīs forest)

One day a young portuguese expeditionary called de Vasco de Almeida had lost their way to the mythical "Mina del Sol" (Sunīs mine) The love at first sight of queen and the Portuguese was immediate. When their relationship was discovered, were both sentenced to death. Almeida, as a way to love is eternal, convinces Ņusta Huillac to be baptized and so after death, be reborn in the afterlife and live together forever. Both are found in the ceremony and are killed by the natives. In 1540, passed through the village of La Tirana, the monk Antonio Rendón, finding a cross, and as a way to honor these young people, is built in a chapel under the name of "Nuestra Seņora del Carmen de La Tirana"

In love with a portuguese! ^^

She definately had a good taste!

I'm suprised I didn't knew this story... Learning is always good.

Also, at the Age of Discovery, baptizing people was some kind of a trend... after all, it was the excuse both Portugal and Spain needed to conquer and plunder everything. :) We even devided the world.
