Sun gate

2013

Measurements: 160 x 100 cm.

Technique: Acrylic on canvas.

I painted this work to always remember my time at La Puerta del Sol, in the Sanctuary of Machu Picchu, Peru. The most special place I have visited.

The condor, puma and snake were responsible for guarding the three worlds that made up Inca mythology.

I painted a Being with a condor beak, puma claw and tail of a serpent symbolising the fusion of these three animals and the three worlds.

Seven eyes of the seven chakras and in the background, the path that leads to the sanctuary after crossing the gate.
