The Purépecha was called “Michuacuan” to the territory assigned to them by their God Curicaveri, meaning: place next to the water. The gods, from the endless sky, in their joys and sorrows, shed their tears to form streams, rivers, lakes and seas. Divine eyes supply us with this source of life. Remember its gifts is to value them. My aesthetic expression on this precious liquid wants to remember to care of, protect to preserve us.
