Abuela me visita en mis sueños, 2022
Priscilla Dobler Dzul

Embroidery on textile

93 x 138 cm

The figure in Abuela me visita en mis sueños derives from a recurring figure in the artist’s dreams. In Mayan folklore, life was created on the back of a crocodile. Inside its mouth, she has placed a representation of her grandmother’s face. Dobler Dzul explains, “Indigenous cultures believe that dreams are our connectors to our ancestors, to our deepest fears or knowledge. A mouth also symbolizes a cave; in many cultures caves are spaces of creation and life. Our mouths are caves.“
