Artwork Description

Enriqueta Marti, a self-styled serial killer who made her living through the sale of charms and potions made with human remains and through prostituting little children (approximately three to twelve years old)... She had several flats in Barcelona where she hid the "remains of her victims or stored them alive to be used later in her potions...police found human remains, jars with greasy and coagulated blood, bones, hair, an ancient book of potions...after murdering the children, she would boil their bodies down for use as prime ingredients (blood, fat, ground bone) in her expensive love potions and facial cremes or in her elixirs to treat tuberculosis, syphilis,etc." Finally arrested in 1912(after killing a five year old boy on the kitchen table with two other children looking on), she lived for another year and three months before being murdered by her prison companions in 1913.
