Lola is a hybrid python. She is inspired by two species of snakes; Morelia viridis y Dendroaspis angusticeps.
This piece intends to invite the viewer to a new relationship with nature, a relationship of admiration and respect, as no animal should have to live in captivity or have to be killed in order for humans to appreciate its beauty and shapes.
Lola is mounted on a black sheet metal box, seeking to embellish an interior with shapes and colors of nature. The beads are an allegory to and in honor of the craftsmanship of the Wixáritari people.
Lola is presently my largest piece with a length of 70 in/180 cm. Lola is available at Ethos Arte, Tienda en línea.
