"Que sacrificio!" (What a sacrifice!) is a painting created by Francisco de Goya in 1796-1797. The artwork depicts a satirical scene, which is characteristic of his work during the Spanish Enlightenment period. The painting showcases a group of people gathered around a table, with one individual holding a pitcher and pouring liquid onto another person's head. This act can be interpreted as a humorous take on the act of baptism or possibly a reference to a religious custom called "limpieza de sangre," which translates to "purification of blood." The title, "Que sacrificio!" (What a sacrifice!), may allude to the absurdity and extreme nature of the scene, with the pouring of liquid potentially being an exaggerated representation of the ritual involved in purifying one's bloodline. Overall, the painting serves as a satirical commentary on the superstitions and traditions of the time.
