When death has permission
In prehispanic cultures – just as in various other civilizations all around the world – the dead were buried surrounded by the objects they most treasured in life, so those objects could help them on their way to “the other side”.
“When I die, I don’t want to go to heaven, I want to go home.” (Victor Carrasco, writer and collector of beautiful objects and anecdotes)
Objects represent history, anecdotes and personal experiences. They give form and spirit to our homes, that with time becomes our personal paradise, where we want to live and die. Death cannot be detained but by filling our lives with history and meaning, we can accept it and give death permission to come and take us with all our beautiful memories.
The use of the asterisk refers to its main use in literature to indicate the call to a footnote, that is, to indicate that there is a reference beyond what is being read or seen, we use it to inform that the object has a story behind it, a concept, a design and an execution that give a unique personality to each of the pieces we select, as well as an easily memorable icon for people who do not speak Spanish.
