Sevilla: A City with Character
What makes this souvenir from Spain truly great, and special, is how it utilizes different elements to dazzle the gaze of the viewer. It is anything but simple. For instance, upon first look this magnet very well looks like a medal somebody would win in a competition. Then it also looks like an extraordinarily classy plate someone would take out for special occasions. Some would see it portrait frame made for an important historical figure or event. It is not hard to imagine that there is a photograph in a frame. However, with the lack of colors and in turn contrast you seem to capture a certain kind of character that you would ordinarily pick up from a person.
