Drawing simply identified as “Negra,” shows a Black woman holding a bill hook or cutlass in one hand, a wooden staff in another; she appears to be wearing a long dress (or a skirt and chemise) that is sleeveless. This and hundreds of other drawings were done by unidentifed Indians during the 1780s and were commissioned by the Spanish Bishop Baltazar Jaime Martinez Companon during his pastoral visit to the region of Trujillo in northern Peru.
