San Jorge bendito, 2015

Embroidered blanket
Blanket and thread
Dimensions: 117 x 154 cm

"San Jorge bendito amarra a tus animalitos
para que no me piquen a mi ni a mis hermanitos"

I embroidered a blanket with the prayer: "Blessed Saint George bind your animals with a blessed cord, so they do not bite me or any of my brothers" It’s a prayer that kids used to recite before going to bed. This work make reference to this moment of vulnerability and the different ritualistic levels used to protect us from a poisonous bite while we where sleeping.
