WORK IN PROGRESS: “Xipe-Totec / Xochipilli”
2015 - (unfinished/in-progress)
52” x 58”
Series: Una bella sporcizia (A Beautiful Filth)
The statue (which I also made out of clay, in order to get accurate lighting) combines elements of the Aztec deities Xipe-Totec (“Our-Lord-Who-Was-Flayed”) and Xochipilli (“Flower Prince”) –– one a god of sacrifice, the other, of art.
