ANA MIRALLES DJINN An eternal youth (T.11), Dargaud 2012 Original cover. Signed. Watercolor and India ink on paper 29.4 × 37 cm (11.57 × 14.57 in.) There is not a breath of air to cool the heat of this Indian day. Sails of a broken ship, Jade's hair falls vertically. It is the arch of her body that provides the movement of this beautiful watercolor, chosen to adorn the cover of volume 11 of Djinn. Around the rigorous axis of the mane, the silhouette seems to twist like the snake of a caduceus. Where is the scene then? "The palace that Jade is looking at without seeing it evokes the architecture of Fatehpur-Sikri, a city in Uttar Pradesh that was the capital of the Mughal Empire in the 16th century," answers Ana Miralles, always keen on documentation. As for the town below, it could be Jodhpur, the blue city - chosen by the artist, who wished to give a tone both lively and warm to this work. In truth, the truth of Djinn, Jade contemplates here the Palace of Pleasures, epicenter of a mythical city belonging only to her adventures. She has been commissioned to make the future wife of the maharajah an expert in the science of love. A reality beyond the reality.
