The intention of these pieces is to introduce the viewer to an internal dialogue about the purpose of religious images; where today they are subjected to an exaggerated and  impossible amount of petitions, that at the end conduct them to decay in popular myths, and falsify their real purpose as an image.

 

Con estas piezas, la intención es introducir al espectador a un diálogo interno para cuestionarse el propósito real de una imagen religiosa, que ante tan exageradas y variadas peticiones, sucumben a creencias populares que conducen a desvirtuar su verdadero propósito como imagen.
