48x60 Mixed media technique. During the process of creating this art piece I deconstructed pieces of clay from a pottery piece derived from the Taino tribe, the indigenous people from the island of Puerto Rico. These were pulverized and sprinkled in the mountainous areas of the map. This art piece pays tribute and immortalizes my people and my deep roots before pre-Columbus times. Note: I found these pieces of clay on the ground in my hometown in Ponce, Puerto Rico at the Indigenous Park and was granted permission to keep these small pieces of clay.
