About the Artwork:

“This piece is based on an ancient sculpture exhibited in the Anthropology and History Museum in Mexico City. The sculpture Represents the God of Death in Mexica Mithology . “Mictlantecuhtli”, (MICTLAN: Place to the death ones // TECUHTLI: Lord )

This is a personal interpretation of what my ancestors believe will find us after death, this cosmic being is dressed in bones, and with the liver exposed ready to receive us after different tests to finally arrive to the end of our existence To be one with the Mictlan.” – Diego Andrade
