L to preoccupation by the " aim of the world " (or by the beginning of another one it was), is, perhaps, which approaches us old the Mexicans and it makes see with other eyes his creations us. No longer since for a century, travelling, Barbarian or wonderful works. They are the signs of a destiny. Based image of catastrophes, these works teach to us to watch frente.a.frente to the constellations and its movement. We happened of the horror to the fascination, the fascination to the contemplation. The art returns to be mirror of the cosmos.

T odas the art works belongs to a ground and a little while, but all of them tend to extend to that ground and that moment: they are of and they are here of there.
