Centli-Maiz. In Mesoamerica, men and women are descended from Maize. The Milpa is the sacred plot that contains it, where all our food comes from. "During the Middle Preclassic (1200 to 400 B.C.) in the Olmec culture, where we find more evidence of its representation, a time when maize became more important".
This piece honours our origin.
