Mario Sergio Avilés honors Guatemala's past and present with this impressive oil on canvas. Inspired by history and textile arts, his composition becomes a powerful statement. "This painting is about the sorrow the descendents of the Maya feel about their lost glory. They look for their roots in the past trying to recuperate their emptied identity," Avilés says as he translates the symbolism in his art. "The kite is a message between the living and their ancestors: the union between the underworld and the world. It represents a mythical means to connect with the past."

Titled "Añoranza" in Spanish.

"A Beautiful, and Meaningful, Work of Art"

This painting gives me great joy. I love the colors and the composition. The artist, Mario Sergio Aviles, created a powerful image, filled with meaning. The subject reminds me of the seasons of the church, the seasons of life, and Gods gifts: children, rain, faith, forgiveness, and hope. Also, the canvas arrived ready to hang and was well protected for transport. This beautiful painting will be treasured.
