The Magic of the Cities.

Zen promotes the rediscovery of the obvious, which is so often lost in its familiarity and simplicity. It sees the miraculous in the common and magic in our everyday surroundings. When we are not rushed, and our minds are unclouded by conceptualizations, a veil will sometimes drop, introducing the viewer to a world unseen since childhood. ~ John Greer

Cuexcomate


Of pre-Hispanic origin, Cuexcomate is the place where the grains keep during the year and avoids that it is contaminated with plagues. Already they are left only a few in Xoyatla, because they have been replaced by inns of metal and plastic. In the foreground a work by Federico Silva call "Orbitales" (Orbitals) located at Borda Gardens in Cuernavaca. [ Granero o Troje para guardar grano, de origen Prehispanico, aun en uso en comunidades del oriente del estado de Morelos, Mx. ]

Borda es una palabra de origen franco-germánico que originalmente significaba palo o poste por la estructura de madera que sostenía este tipo de edificios-granero.
Esta palabra todavía persiste en el idioma catalán y en la fabla aragonesa, referidos a graneros o pajares aislados en las montañas.
Hoy día , las bordas, auténtico s edificios son convertidos en residencia de verano para turistas.
