Visiting the tombs touched me deeply. The murals were painted in red, black and yellow paint, made of minerals that are common in the region. The motifs are mostly geometric and sometimes seem to represent posts and beams of the house of the living. My interest for the murals in Tierradentro is also related to two of my latest projects: 34.09m2 (2015), a wall drawing made with freshly cut reed pens and Indian ink. And Jump to the beat of the animal feet (2015) inspired on the prehistoric rock paintings of Serra da Capri Vara, Brazil.
