Noche de damas chinas
Damas chinas portrays two male figures seemingly in deep concentration. The two characters
are similarly dressed in hat and armor-like outfits and seated in red frame chairs
on opposite sides of a black and red checkerboard. This foreground is set against
a background of blue and black squares within squares. The pictorial space here differs
from most of Luna’s compositions as, except for the two figures, it consists entirely
of flat, geometric shapes. The checkerboard is also flat and visually parallel to
the background without any concession to its three-dimensional object-hood. Peering
over the top side of the checkerboard is the Elegguá, poised to observe, or to guide
