The work is part of a series that evaluates the place for ideology, faith, morals and spirituality in the act of painting today. Motivated by a feeling of enchantment and distrust when looking at the vast group of traditional paintings depicting the first masses in America and the Caribbean, the painting is concerned with identity and syncretism today. It displays visual components that reference the divine and the exotic in popular western culture with the aim of subverting them and question them.
