Amoxcalli Oliverio Balcells

The Library for Southwest Human Development

The title for this piece is called Amoxcaalli that literally means house of books, I want to share the ancient Mesoamerican concept that many cultures had in their society, that includes the library or amoxcalli where all the painted books were available for study with many themes like history, study of the calendars, materials and food, medicine plants, poetry, sacred games and culture legacy.

This piece includes traditional colors like yellow oxide, red oxide, natural blue, black and white; also a humming bird on the back with the vibration of colors on the top.

I’ll keep you posted where the piece is going to be for auction.
