Tortura T-shirt design by Xhico

Tortura T-Shirt designed by Xhico for Woolves. This shirt designed is based on one of my woodcuts, "TORTURA". Originally created for a Dia de los Muertos exhibition as a limited edition print. This print was a tribute to people who have been tortured and publicly humiliated doing so.
The mask seen in the image is inspired by an exhibit of torture devices I saw while visiting Mexico. Iron masks were placed on women who gossiped and they were forced to wear these devices in public. Some were rigged so that if the women talked, they would injured themselves. For example, possibly slice their tongues or lips while encaged with these devices. The text below the mask is in latin and translates to "women remain silent in church".
TORTURA -ACID WASH T-Shirt is available in the standard run as one-color natural ink on black. There are only 24 avaible of these for Pre-sale. $25 each
TORTURA - GOLD - LIMITED EDITION T-SHIRT highly limited edition T-shirt. Same Tortura image, but printed entirely in gold foil. Only 12 available for Pre-sale. $35 each
