Our next print: Fefe Talavera’s “Mama Quilla”

Posted in Walls by BLDG on June 10, 2009

We’ve just received Fefe’s newest design, exclusively found at The BLDG, entitled “Mama Quilla” It looks like we’ll begin printing this piece tomorrow. Her latest in a series of monsters, it’s a 4 color (Black, Metallic Silver, Red, and Turquoise) This piece is a phenomenal example of Fefe’s talent and vision. She explains her inspiration for this piece:

“The Incas had a myth concerning lunar eclipses that is fairly common among ancient peoples. In these stories the Moon is always attacked by some force or creature that manages to swallow the darn thing, only to be defeated in the end by some big-shot hero. For the Incas, this creature was the snake or puma, and the Moon itself was a goddess known as Mama Quilla. Analogous to her solar husband Inti, Mama Quilla was portrayed as a silver disk with a human face. She ruled over calendars and the measurement of time, and kept protective watch over married women.”
