This work explores the crossover of cultures - the intersections and omissions. Astrid worked with a professional craftsman to create piñatas of gures from Greek mythology. The aim of this project was to contrast the imagination of a person from a country with a Mayan cultural heritage, such as Guatemala, with the fantasies from Greek antiquity, a symbol of Western civilization.
