"Mens sana in corpore sano"

“Mens sana in corpore sano” is Latin for "Healthy mind in a healthy body.” This piece is an homage to my 2018 when I had a knee surgery after tearing my acl. I had a full year of painting about futbol, but was not able to play it, so I had to deal with a lot of frustration related to body limits.
At the same time, I think it works as a trophy that mocks the idea of a ¨winner," and represent more normal people like me.
