Palillos, cerillos, pintura, y un poco de duropor
Prestado por la artista

En Guatemala es algo tradicional por los Días del Muerto porque se celebra y se recuerda a las personas que ya murieron.

Eran dos personas muy especiales para mi porque eran mis amigos y de mi familia pero lamentablemente cuando estaban cruzando no llegaron al destino. Pero lo bueno es de que ya están descansando y nosotros siempre los recordamos no solo en esas fechas sino todos los días.

In Guatemala it is something traditional on Day of the Dead, because we celebrate and remember the people who have passed away.

These were two very special people to me because they were my friends and from my family but, unfortunately, they did not arrived to their destination when they crossed the desert. But the good part is that now they are at rest and we always remember them, not only in these times, but every day.
