About the Artwork

El Tajín was inscribed as a World Heritage Site in 1992, because of its historical significance and architecture and engineering. Its architecture, which is unique in Mesoamerica, is characterized by elaborate carved reliefs on the columns and frieze. The 'Pyramid of the Niches', a masterpiece of ancient Mexican and American architecture, reveals the astronomical and symbolic significance of the buildings. The site is one of the most important in Mexico and the most important in the state of Veracruz. I visited this site and immediately took out my pencils and watercolours to draw and paint some of the buildings on this remarkable site. This original acrylic is the result where I depicted the Pyramid of the Niches, of which there are 365, as a structure of dereliction and beauty. The archway represents the “window” through which I drew the pyramid, which stands on a green and reddish land.
