Lukas' Bestiary

This is a cartoon from Lukas' book "Bestiary of the Kingdom of Chile". Obviously, his beasts are fictitious, but are based on the idiosyncrasy of the Chilean.
This particular cartoon is called "Gallo-Vaca" (rooster-cow). In Chilean slang, Gallo is usually used to refer to a Guy and Vaca is used to refer to someone Dumb.
Sorry for the blurred picture. I couldn't do better because of the glass...

Do you know that in the Central Library of the Coimbra University exists a book of the XV century just dedicated to the imaginary monsters supposedly discovered for our navigators?
It is good to know that the theme continues alive!

Interesting! I like learning Spanish idioms from different countries. Like the vibrant yellow of the wall, too.
