María Eugenia Prepares the Awán

Acrylic on Canvas, 24” X 18”, 2019

For many years María Eugenia Suset Zulueta has prepared the food for the awán, a ritual held every December in Perico. The bowls are filled with seeds and legumes that will be offered to the ancestors in an elaborate ceremony that includes drumming, dancing and singing late into the night.
