Description

Ignacio is 9 years old and he's already out of the closet, although he doesn't know yet what it's all about —except life is now much harder than just the ocassional slap in the face and the bullying on the school.

The cross represents the stigma of being gay at age nine. The carpet is painted with the LGBTTIQ rainbow; Ignacio is walking the path of his true gender identity, and although it offers him its softness and warmth, it does not help him much in relieving him of the weight of his cross.
