The Menina Fever

Living in Spain and seeing so many different representations of La Menina around, I just had to give my own Menina a try. Las Meninas is a famous painting by Diego Velazquez — a painting that gathers crowds daily at the Prado Museum in Madrid. Google it and you’ll recognize the image immediately. A little princess in a bigger-than-life skirt with a glance that can rival that of Leonardo’s Mona Lisa, stands surrounded by luxury and doting meninas, the maids of honor.

My Menina is different, of course. And it’s dynamic — you can move and position the pieces any way you like. That’s why I call it Interactive Menina.
