This artwork pays homage to the vibrant Mayan culture, combining elements that symbolize both its opulence and transience. The artwork features golden glitter, representing the richness and splendor of Mayan civilization, while the original black organic sand from the Guatemala West Pacific coast represents the transient nature of culture.

The golden glitter signifies the wealth and prosperity associated with Mayan culture. It serves as a visual representation of the grandeur, intricacy, and artistic achievements of the Mayan civilization. The shimmering golden particles evoke a sense of luxury and evoke the golden artifacts and elaborate craftsmanship often associated with Mayan art.

On the other hand, the black organic sand sourced from the Guatemala West Pacific coast adds an element of transience and impermanence to the artwork. This sand, derived from volcanic stone ground into splinters of black glass, reflects the notion that cultures, no matter how rich and opulent, are subject to change and the passage of time. It represents the ephemerality of human creations and serves as a reminder of the transient nature of cultural heritage.

By juxtaposing the golden glitter and the black organic sand, Sasa Roche creates a visual contrast that encapsulates the duality of the Mayan culture. It speaks to the profound historical significance and artistic legacy of the Mayan civilization while acknowledging the impermanence and fragility of cultural traditions over time.

Through this artwork, Sasa Roche invites viewers to contemplate the complexities of culture, its richness, and its ephemeral nature. It serves as a tribute to the Mayan civilization and encourages a deeper understanding and appreciation of the cultural tapestry that shapes our world.
