Chipahualiztli or limpia is a contemporary ceremony in which we purify our bodies and spirits through the burning of copal or incense, as well as with grass and medicinal herbs. In this scene, a priestess purifies a man. From the incense burner emerges Quetzalcoatl, the Plumed Serpent, Lord of Clarity and Creation, who created humans and culture in the beginning of time. He is the protector of spirituality and devotion, as well as a personification of community.
The dancers represented here can be either ancient or contemporary people (notice the bananas in the offering, a fruit which is not traditional of Mesoamerica). The Temple of the Sun, the main building of Teotihuacan, appears in ruins, as it can be seen today. However, in ancient times, the Mexica or Aztecs held ceremonies at this sacred place, which was already in ruins, abandoned, by the time they arrived to the center of Mexico. This is a painting which celebrates Mexica spirituality and recognizes the heritage of our ancestors.

Mas y Manos - La Fiesta Hispana
Each year Los Templos holds a week long festival celebrating the different mixes of Hispanic heritage that makes up the cultural foundation of their city. This allows JT particularly to celebrate the Mexican side of his genealogy.
Growing up he was made to celebrate both his mother and father’s cultures through extra-curriculars and activities, and he grew up learning guitar and singing ranchera (also baile folklórico in high school but he hasn’t brought that into his adult life). He doesn’t play guitar as much as he used to, and he’s a little self-conscious about his voice, which is serviceable but isn’t the best, but something about putting on a traje charro and celebrating at la fiesta makes him feel more confident, honest, and open. Like a star in an old movie.
**
I drew all this around this time last year but I don’t think I ever posted it here, so here you go! The song that JT is singing is “Entrega Total” and he is 100% on his tippy-toes to kiss Mas ( @isei-silva ) in the second photo.
I need to draw JT in his traje charro this year, a proper color illustration. Maybe after I set up my new computer.

The eagle is the nahualli or spirit animal of Huitzilopochtli, patron divinity of the Mexica or Aztecs. This is why it is common to find depictions of eagles in the ancient art of Central Mexico, for through this animal the presence of the Lords of the Sun, War and Power is invoked.
One of the earliest influences for the national emblem is found in the teocalli of the sacred war, a piece kept in the National Museum of Anthropology. In the teocalli appears an eagle on a nopal cactus, on whose beak is the atl-tlachinolli, water-burning, the glyph of the complementary opposites, which make the world move. This depiction is a reference to the foundation of Mexico Tenochtitlan, which should happen on the site where an eagle on a nopal should be found.
