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

Tlaloc






-Detail-
Source of Tlaloc
Just in front of an ancient urban water station, today established as the museum “Carcamo of Chapultepec”, you can see the only underwater mural entitled "Water, Source of Life" and conceived by the renowned Mexican Muralist, Diego Rivera in 1951.
The main part of the decoration is the figure, a polychrome bas-relief of Tlaloc, (the aztec and mesoamerican God of Water) emerging from the mud, which is made of colored stones combining painting and sculpture.
