Dance of the Sun

Dance of the Sun

In Mexico, tone is a vital principle of the solar origin and common to all humans. In post-colonial Mexico, tone adopted different meanings from the soul entity to the existence of an animal in the supernatural space. In the works of Salime, the praying mantis appears as its tone or nahual. The praying mantis is given the mythical power to transmit and heal the soul of those who observe it with whom they will share their destiny.
