Description
This woman of nobility is dressed in all her finest jewelry and clothing. She represents the fine things in life: beauty, decoration, womanhood and the general good life. At the same time, she makes us ask ourselves questions about life, death, and humanity. What is important in life and for the mysterious afterlife? What was life like for the wealthy of Meso-America? This noble lady represents beauty, femininity and strength. Made 2000 years ago, this woman is a symbol of permanency--as a representation of a specific woman and of all women for all time. Times may change, but some things remain the same, only relative: adoration and admiration of women and beauty and adornment in representation for the afterlife. And how will you be remembered? - (PF.2720)
