Perfection in the Art of Sitting

The women of the Heredia clan are exquisite in the manner of their sitting. Three times they have defeated all comers in the polling that is done each year before the Festival of the Moon, an event that draws the finest posers from every precinct of the city, including the district of Calle Dulce where, it is said, art is so utterly plentiful that it pollutes the drinking water. Boys and girls are encouraged at an early age to imitate the best examples of any art before attempting innovations. Innovation for its own sake is considered bad form, of course, since everyone knows that the truest art arises naturally and settles upon a person with the same subtle shading as candlelight upon a beautiful woman's cheek.
