Cosmovisión (Sun Dial)
This sun dial is a conceptualization of the world, of reality. It is conceived atop the astrological and spiritual beliefs of the ancient civilizations that inhabited Mesoamerica, along with the knowledge of physics and mathematics that was achieved by those peoples. It incorporates the dictates of space and time that govern the cycle of life and of earth since its origins. All according to the knowledge and beliefs that were passed down between generations in pre-Hispanic times.
The work is an interpretation of the worldview that prevailed among the people of Mesoamerica before the arrival of the Spanish. It interprets the beginning and end of cycles, the timing of ceremonial activities, indicating the spiritual protection of each person by way of their tona or nagual. It also interprets the origin of the world and of humanity.
