Edgar’s Ofrenda

Born 1996
The Fighter
Clay, cut paper, and tissue flowers

I dedicate my ofrenda to my grandfather, may he rest in peace. I chose this person because he was the person I appreciated the most and even though he passed away several years ago, he will always be present in my mind. He used to tell me how much they suffered because they had to work hard to buy food for every single day. I am happy to have had a grandfather like him and although I don’t think I will see him again, he will live in my heart forever. For my ofrenda I used the colors blue, black and brown. The blue to me represents the sky. The black signifies the period of mourning I had for him, and the brown means the earth because he worked the land.

Barro, papel picado, y flores

Mi ofrenda se la dedico a mi abuelo que en paz descanse. Elegí a esta persona porque era la persona que más yo apreciaba y aunque ya tenga varios años de muerto, siempre me lo llevaré en la memoria. Él me contaba que antes sufrían mucho porque tenían que trabajar duro para poder comprar la comida de cada día. Estoy muy contento de haberle tenido un abuelo como él, y aunque no creo que lo vuelva a ver, siempre vivirá vivo en mi corazón. Para mi ofrenda usé los colores azul, negro y café.  Para mí el azul significa el cielo. El negro significa el luto que le tuve y el café significa la tierra porque trabajaba en el campo.
