The miraculous apparition of Maria of Guadalupe, the patroness of Mexico and the Americas, converted millions of Aztecs to Catholicism. Maria who crushes the serpent, according to the Catholics, a symbol for the barbaric (child) offering rituals of the Aztecs. But who exactly are the Barbarians here? As the Catholic conquerors destroyed a complete civilization… That’s why this altar is baroque-Mexican orientated on the inside and imprinted with Aztec signs and symbols on the outside, separated, yet coexisting.
