Back to back days on AJ for another heritage piece commemorating his Hindu background. I gotta say this was one for the record book, intense small details from the head-dress down to the garments. But, non the less a portfolio piece indeed.
Have a look at this divine symbol representing man’s eternal strive towards integration with nature.
Speaker. Listener. Giver.
Driving with the family through Central Santa Ana and this weathered mural jumps out at me. I had to take some still-shots of this particular piece that reminds us all to pursue improvement. Most of my past, I can truly say I did things out of muscle-memory. But now I make it a priority to take time to take things in. So have a look through my lens of this chicano painting commemorating education.
Sam from Long Beach for these wooden masks, signifying Korean culture and ancestry. I’ts always a great time with these heritage pieces. I have a few in rotation at the moment, can’t wait to showcase the new segments.
The purpose of these national treasures were to be used in war, for both the soldier and its horse. Ceremonially, for burial rites to drive away evil spirits; to remember the faces of great historical figures in death masks; and in the arts, particularly in ritual dances, courtly, and theatrical plays.
Just touched down in Mexico and the agenda is booked, but before the punches in bunches, let’s fuel up with some menudo from the motherland.

We switch the layout after witnessing Chichen-Itza to some nature and exotic wildlife, from animals for the general public, to some others much deeper in the abyss. And as always the people of Quintana Roo were so noble and welcoming.
We happened to stumble across the city of Merida on the Yucatan Peninsula. Also being home to the second oldest Cathedral in the New World, the Cathedral of San Ildefonso.
We also walked through the premier beaches and witnessed a lot of people enjoying fun in the sun. So, we made it a priority to take part in the turquoise water paradise.
