In the Dominican Republic women’s hair culture is a significant part of their weekly routines and overall Dominican beauty. Local artist Anguirra has continued his series of women getting their hair done here in Nagua for the Artesano Project after bringing several of these portraits to walls throughout the D.R. and Cuba. This particular portrait is of Doña Patria, who donning hair curlers is a proud representation of this culture immortalizing the legacy of every woman from here.
