Details

Passed down through generations of Mexico's Otomi people, this is a style of art that is inspired, original, and beautiful. Edgar Trejo carries on the traditions of his village with this design, which is painted with vegetable dyes on handmade amate, or tree bark paper, which takes several days to procure through a complex process. Amate was a sacred material for Maya and Aztec 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 floral design, this piece of wall art is full of history. The center and outer regions of the painting have a handwoven pattern with open spaces, resulting in a truly stunning and impressive piece.
