Lupita & AxelVoid, Aguas Calientes, Mexico| 04 | 12 | 2021
This mural was done in the patio “Casa Mais”, a shelter for the Huicholes indigenes.
They stay there during their peregrination to Wirikuta, a sacred land to them. The mural is based on some figures of the altar of my host Chunga. Often times they name the porcelain figure that appears in the mural María or Lupita. Oddly enough while painting I met Lupita, a 9 year old Huchiole that lives in front of the mural. Since she was hanging out with us I decided to have her do a little piece in the mural, you can find it on the bottom right. She painted a landscape with flowers, a rainbow and a “Peyote”. It’s a ceremonial sacred cactus that they use as guidance to Wirikuta. In the photo you can find her with a peyote plant she brought in order to paint it better.
Special thanks to Casa Mais, GraffitiWorld, Eutimio, Chunga, Doner, Hueso, Bucko, Meik and Lupita for their friendship and hospitality.
