Santiago is often presented with a full-fledged cane, as the object of one of his probable deaths. As in other cases, there is also no agreement and other traditions speak of stoning at the hands of the Sanhedrin. In Ramón María del Valle Inclán, the baton of a full-fledged man became in the hands of the perpetrator Manuel Bueno, a gathering companion, into the baton with which he would hit Valle’s twin and make him lose his Arm. Valle’s fortitude transcended as he was able to stay awake during the amputation, fainting only once and smoking a cigar when he regained consciousness. Of course, in Valle, so fabulous of himself, this is as likely as anything attributed to his lookalike Santiago of him.


ROBERTO MAJÁN (Soria, España, 1967)

Roberto Maján is a self-taught artist. He moved to Madrid when he was eighteen and soon began working as an illustrator for various specialised periodicals and publishers, including ExpansiónActualidad EconómicaVogueEl SolEl PaísHealth and Beauty, Anaya, Santillana and Edelvives.

In 2006 he founded Artichoque, a publishing house that released several books illustrated by his own pen, such as Kamasutra (Daniel Gil Editorial Design Award finalist in 2006) and Petronia y la reina bigotuda (shortlisted for the 2007 Visual Prize for Best Children’s Book). That year he received the Fundación Progreso y Cultura Prize for his illustrated book El Diablo y yo, which also won an honourable mention at the Lazarillo Awards.

In his personal artistic production, he parades his consummate skill with brushes and watercolours, depicting mostly human figures with a subtle and adept use of colour and creating textures and glazes to produce an oeuvre of stunning beauty and delicacy. His favourite themes expose and explore human passions, particularly love, sex and food.
