# Tómbola

## History

Many kids get a couple of coins every Sunday from their parents, and I wasn't an exception. With this money I ran to the closest small store and check what could I buy with this coins. One of the things that took more my attention was a piece of paperboard with a beautiful mosaic design build by small candies wrapped on paper with bright colors. Together with the candy came a small paper with a number. Sorounding the mosaic were stapled toys and bags full of candies called prizes. Every price have a number sticked. So if the number with candy you bought match with the one of the prize you win!. It was like lottery, picking a 5 cents candy you could win a 2 or 4 dollars prize. It was awesome for me. This objects still exist in many candy stores in Mexico and is called Tómbola.

## Description and mechanism

I made an appropiation of the Tómbola mechanism and used in my current online shop with my artworks as prizes (drawings, catalogs, stickers, etc.). You can see down below 1500 geometric shapes with numbers, letters and symbols. You can pick one.. any . all has prizes. Some small and some other bigger. The cost of every chance is 20 Euros. BUT...If you write me an email (click here to contact form) with your thoughts about this art project.. I will give one chance for free!!
