Huehueteotl Art Print
This listing is for a beautiful giclee print of this original painting of Huehueteotl Xiuhtecuhtli done in watercolors.
I was inspired by a photograph of the light emitted by a dying star for the background. It looks like an hourglass and I felt the deep symbolism embodied the energy of Huehueteotl. Huehueteotl is also associated with volcanos 🌋 and it was while I was painting this that Popocatépetl erupted. I painted this with watercolors on 100% cotton. I also used a metallic watercolor paint . This piece was primarily painted at night with Copal smoke in the air.
Huehueteotl Xiuhtecuhtli, is the dios viejo or old god, he embodies the dual nature of fire and time. Often depicted as a viejito with a brazier on his head, he symbolizes both the destructive force of fire and its role in renewal and transformation. As the god of time, Xiuhtecuhtli governs the cyclical passage of days and years, integral to Mexica rituals and calendars. He signifies the profound connection between fire, time, and the perpetual cycles of creation and destruction.
