Cutting of(f) fingers

I do like the Dutch foreign ministry desk diary, although more for its furry cover than the tired and overwhelmingly western images reproduced. One exception: Co Westerik’s Snijden aan gras (Westerik’s site -> enter -> Schilderijen -> scroll down or Ctrl-F to Snijden aan gras I). Fingers that are cut in Spanish culture tend to be detached rather than deteriorated, and usually by someone rather nasty. I agree with the Dutch, whoever they may be, that it is more dramatically interesting to leave a damaged finger attached (and sticking a finger in a dyke is not as bad as it is made out to be, anyway, my dears).
