With the motive of the 10th Aniversary of Carlos Fuentes'passing, I've been asked to participate in dedicating this year Altar for the Day of The Death, to this celebrated writer, who's work has become a strong representative of the Mexican culture, sentiment and identity. My task for this proyect was to design the Altar and I have also produced 3 pieces inspired in the life and work of Fuentes. 

In this proyect I am proudly working with a group of ladies called Grupo Tule, directed by Dr. Martha Montero Siburt, who posseses immense knowledge and understanding of the Mexican tradition from a deep antropological perspective.


Grupo Tule is a group of ladies who have dedicated years of their time and their experties in building a strong sense of identity for the Mexican Comunity here in The Netherlands working to create a new educative system providing tools to the parents that help enhance the Mexican roots and understanding of History and tradition.
