Through the creation of a series of visuals, the project aims to inform both people inside and outside of Mexico about the views and values held by the Tzeltal, Tzotzil, and Tojolabal communities of Chiapas in southern Mexico. The research conducted focuses on the "concepts" behind the beliefs of these groups, which are then illustrated and utilized to expresses, albeit abstractly, the prevailing indigenous culture in a modern context.
