This piece was created for Ximena (1985-2020) my prima hermana or sister cousin one year after she departed from Earth. In it, I symbolically return her to Lima, the place of her birth. In this photographic altar I hold that special photo I took of her. The images of the ocean and the sky were taken in Lima in 2020. The altar contains the four elements; agua, aire, tierra y fuego. Fire is represented by the red veil, the circle of fire.
