‘Ocelote’ and ‘Xolotl’, acrylic and oil on Xico ceramics - SOLD (Private collection in Mexican State, Mexico)
“Ocelote” > Primer Xico representa el folclor y la naturaleza mexicana con su piel de ocelote, montañas en su cabeza y grandes ojos que irradian vida. Sus radiantes colores y el corazón en su centro simbolizan la vida y la sustentabilidad. Acrílico y oleo en cerámica.
“Xolotl” > Segundo Xico repredenta el inframundo y la siguiente vida, siendo la continuacion de mi primer Xico. Se pueden ver el cosmos en su piel, fuego en su cabeza y los huesos del perro Xolotl, así como sus particulares ojos del siguiente mundo. Acrílico y oleo en cerámica.
Los dos Xicos son el balance entre la vida y la muerte.

Artwork strongly inspired by two ancient Mexican figures: The deity Quetzalcoatl which means "feathered serpent", an important religious and political symbol, and the sun which was a major mythological and cosmological symbol for the Aztecs. I have mixed two concepts into the bottle: the ancient Mexican heritage represented by the serpents and the Aztec sun which centre is the Alacran logo, as well as the quality of life and death/light and darkness which each serpent represent, embracing each other which is one of the major ideas of the ancient Mexican cultures: death, as life, is only a new beginning.
