CHAKRILLAS

Mix media on cotton paper,
35 x 50 cm.

Chakrillas explores coincidences between  Andean and Indian cultures: Chacra = arable land, for agriculture. Chakra= energetic point; Illas =  Andean magical stones. Kriyas = actions and breathing that can arrange a magical circunstance. Two children are linking this world. Above, the shape resembles an orange cup with its three pistils running out. It brings the figure of the precious saffron. A wish to feel natural sensations seeing a saffron meadow in the north of India, Kashimir… ( a gift poem in the right hands). And the girl, in red on Earth, has a Quintu, an Andean sacred way to offer three coca leaves. They both talk about an ancestral medicine, which connect us.chakrillas
