Created with techniques passed down through generations of Mexico's Otomi people, this dazzling composition by Edgar Trejo is painted with vegetable dye on handmade amate, or tree bark paper, which takes several days to procure through a complex process. Amate was a sacred material for Aztec and Mayan peoples, historically used to write down and chronicle important events and trade, even serving as the bridge between the mortal and the spiritual worlds during religious ceremonies. According to Otomi traditions, the bark used to produce amate can only be extracted from a tree during certain parts of the lunar cycle, indicating the high level of respect held toward nature. Featuring a hand-painted multicolored geometric sun motif, this work of art is full of history and culture. The inner ring has a handwoven pattern with open spaces, resulting in a truly stunning and impressive piece.
