Artist's description:

The title of this work "Amoxtli" comes from the Nahuatl language, an aztec language spoken in central Mexico since 7th Century AD., meaning 'books'. Nahuatl was originally written with a pictographic script that served as a mnemonic to remind readers of texts they had learnt orally. Many of these scripts, that contained sacred messages and ideas were destroyed by the Spanish when they conquered Mexico in the 1500, they then introduced the Latin alphabet to write Nahuatl.
This work was Inspired by the indegenous groups working to create alternatives to keep their linguistic identity alive.
