Details

Spiral motifs adorn the center and inner ring of this impressive folk art painting. Created with a technique passed down through generations of Mexico's Otomi people, it is inspired, original, and beautiful. Edgar Trejo carries on the traditions of his village with this composition, which 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 meticulous freehand design, the painting has handwoven areas with open spaces in the center and inner circle.
