El Soplo Divino


El Soplo Divino (The Divine Breath)
Acrylic on Canvas – 40″ x 24″
Oliverio Balcells 2005

The energy that constituted the world was the spiritual energy that generated all living beings– from a whale to an ant, but that in the human being it was generated with greater intensity through the consciousness of Being.

The human being, through its generating potential of spiritual energy, is seen committed to the creative force in order to maintain universal order. To sustain, preserve and humanize the world was the divine mission of the ancient Mexicans in the universal cosmic order of life.

Life recharges its “essence” when it receives the “divine breath that grants consciousness of being.” It is the wind that announces the arrival of the rain and with this the flowering of life. The divine breath that gives life to the spiritual consciousness is associated with Quetzalcoatl.

Quetzalcoatl in Nahuatl, Cuculkan in Maya, Belaguetza in Zapotec. Only one philosophical-cultural matrix, only one religion with diverse variants, in its expression in time and space.
—Guillermo Marin (Writer and Scholar from Oaxaca)

Product Description

Toltecayotl Collection

This work preserves and expresses the most important historical and philosophical legacy, in essence and structure, of the civilization of the Anahuac.

With respect, honor, appreciation and love I dedicate this work as a recognition to the inheritance deposited in the DNA of every one of the Mexicans. Still it is dormant, waiting for us to summon it up in order to return to having our own face and a true heart.
—Oliverio Balcells.

A grouping of the creations of the Toltec culture

“The knowledge, practices and wisdom related to the universal search to transcend our existence in this material world, are known as Toltecayotl.”
—Guillermo Marin

“The Toltecayotl, essence of being Toltec, was sustained with the philosophy of the duality and came to represent for the posterity that which is most elevated inasmuch as the constant search of the loftiness in knowledge and in the human arts, to become a Toltec, to become what is Toltec, a concept that was born with those sedentary villages that by living at the edge of the rivers, lagoons and streams where the tula plants abound, they managed to evolve until they converted their name into a synonym of perfection, that which is described in the posterity designated to the artists that have Toltec hands, and to those wise men and philosophers that make their knowledge bloom like Toltecs”
—Arturo Meza
