This piece was inspired by my homeland of Venezuela and the veneration of San Benito (which is a black saint) in several regions of Venezuela. It was also inspired by African influence in Venezuelan culture and religion. I hope the viewers will experience the richness of Venezuelan culture and become aware of the African contributions to that culture. This piece is part of my thesis work in graduate school which is a series of Contemporary Altars about my family and Venezuela. I combine a variety of techniques like Lost Wax Casting, collage, assemblage, stamping, etc.
