Artwork

Earth Sign
The frame of this zodiac sign represented by the element of earth is exemplified by a succulent that represents the fertility and abundance of the ground, this type of plant can be found in all Mexican territory they are considered as a highly adaptable species, on the other hand a sweet bread pan de muerto (Death bread*) to express the earthly. The money in all Earth signs is key and it is easy to this type of element that can accomplish any success on the financial area, in this collection is manifested as Papel Picado (Mexican chopped paper**).

Virgo
Is a Zodiac sign that represents an interesting duality between perfection and beauty, I can really identify this sign as a Caryatid, with a rational way of seeing live and delicacy of their movements. This Catrina is all about sophistication, the colorful Mariachi sombrero, elegant jewelry with pearls and the classic stockings and gloves. Her body language is key, she is not giving you the pleasure of looking at her chest, and with a look behind her shoulders is like a flirty look to the spectator. Money is not something to motivate them, in the end, they always have their backs.

Background
If can be described as a limbo area, most of the time Virgoans do not let their feeling being show so you must be aware of the signs they are showing... and finally, the constellation is also represented in the artwork.


Death bread*, is a traditional bread that most of the time is sweet and it has a taste like orange with sugar grains on top; you can find them at the end of September until November in bakeries from all Mexico.

*Mexican chopped paper* is a traditional decoration in almost all the celebrations in Mexico, but is a milestone during the celebrations of Day of the Death. It consists of making silhouettes of different topics, in this case, skeletons, flowers, geometric figures even text, to decorate an area.
