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

You don't take a photograph, you make it. ~Ansel Adams

Cosmovitral / Cosmo Stained Glass / Botanical Garden



Link

The botanical garden in Toluca is notable as much for its flora as for the magnificent art noveau building in which it is housed. Completed in 1910 as part of Mexico's centennial celebrations, the former City of Toluca Market boasts 5,000 square meters of space holding 400 plant species within its walls. And the walls themselves are spectacular, comprised in part of 3,000 square meters of stained glass. The market itself, located right downtown on a large plaza below the state Congress and the Cathedral, was closed in 1975 and five years later the building was rededicated as the Cosmovitral-Jardin Botanico. The stained glass, finished in 1990 by Leopoldo Flores Valdes, includes 28 different colors of glass and is considered one of the largest artworks in the world. In the glass, Flores Valdes sought to depict his interpretation of time, movement and the contradictory phenomena taking place in matter, from a cosmogonic perception.

Fuente de la Cibeles / Cibeles Fountain


La fuente, conjuntamente con la plaza, fue inaugurada el 5 de septiembre de 1980 por el presidente José López Portillo, quien estuvo acompañado por el Alcalde de Madrid, Profesor Enrique Tierno Galván, quien vino a México ex profeso y por el Jefe del Departamento del Distrito Federal. Esta es una réplica al tamaño de la fuente y escultura dedicada a la Cibeles, una de las más características de Madrid. Esta copia ha sido donada a la Ciudad de México por su comunidad de residentes españoles, contándose para ello con la aquiescencia y concurso del excelentísimo Ayuntamiento y vecinos de la Villa de Madrid. Siendo uno de los monumentos más representativos de esa ciudad, se erige hoy como símbolo de hermanamiento entre ambas metrópolis.
