  • SUBÍAS GALTER, Juan. El arte popular en España. 1948. 445 610, nº 374, photograph; Man’s costume, from La Armuña (Segovia), kept in the Museo del Pueblo Español de Madrid. The waistcoat and sash shine out from beneath the short jacket; the sash is embroidered to perfection with coloured silk flowers, leaves, stems and birds that stand out for their remarkable fluidity; an extraordinary adornment, on which the birds face each other over an evocation of the Tree of Life; all in golden tones and sequins. The theme is framed in a purple border, within which the golds, greens and blues are predominant.
