KAUYUMARI is a bronze sculpture of a woman with a deer mask or hat.
The legend of Kauyumari, the Blue Deer who led the men to the hikuri (peyote). This is a special tribute to the sacred deer of Huichol culture in Mexico. This is a prehispanic culture that survived along the conquest, and keep alive their traditions, especially their connection to the earth, to nature and to the ancient myths.
The combination of a Deer mask on a woman body talks about the misterios of life, and our deep connection to this beautiful planet.
This piece is part of a special collection , called Customs and Identities, and it is a reflection about how many costumes we wear in front of people, the society, family and so on. We have roles that are different for each person we meet in life, so we try to adapt and respond to that particular role. Sometime we align, sometimes we react.
That’s how we build our personality. This piece has a black and green patina with golden details, polished to reveal the natural bronze color.
The black patina is made from the green one, after a burning process, so magical and mystical.
This piece is a unique piece.
