El Perro en el Portal de las Profundidades entero by susanavillegas
El Perro en el Portal de las Profundidades entero

El Perro en el Portal de las Profundidades 

Esta imagen es parte del desarrollo del concepto de Cerbero Acuático (por favor leer descripción). Esta vez se vuelve a la característica original del mito: el Cerbero es un perro.

El perro, ese noble amigo con el que los humanos tenemos el privilegio de convivir, ese ser cariñoso, juguetón, travieso, compañero, amigo, que guarda la ternura como característica aún cuando ya ha alcanzado la adultez, ese ser protector, etc. Esta última característica y, a propósito de la imagen expuesta, se puede admitir  que es verdad que los perros tienden a ser protectores con  los humanos con quienes cohabitan y también vigilantes de su territorio, por eso es normal oír hablar  del “perro guardián”, de ese tópico sin duda surgió el mito del celador del inframundo.

Muchas veces hay una deformada concepción  de esa característica: a veces muchas familias tienen un perro sólo para que cuide la casa, espante a delincuentes y para tareas afines. Con el objetivo de lograr”buenos guardianes” algunas personas cometen actos reprochables como el maltrato físico expresamente efectuado para que el perro adquiera una conducta agresiva, en otras ocasiones, además,  les restan el alimento y los ejemplos sobran. Es importante llamar la atención sobre esa actitud, ojalá la gente pudiera comprender que el perro o cualquier otro animal no debe ser visto como  un objeto que tenga un uso y menos aún que pueda ser susceptible de ser  explotado.

The Dog from Gate of Depths

This image is part of the development of the concept of Water Cerberus ( please read description)Here I return to the original feature in the myth: Cerberus is a dog.

I would like to talk about the dog, that noble friend that humans have the privilege of living with, that being affectionate, playful, companion, friend, who keeps the characteristic tenderness even when it has already reached adulthood, the vigilant being , etc. And I specially want to talk about this last feature and by the way of the image I show, I must say that it is true that dogs tend to be protective with  humans and guards its territory, so it is normal to hear talk of "watchdog ". That’s why, that topic gave rise, for sure, the myth about the caretaker of the underworld.

From my perspective, there is often a distorted view of that feature of dog in our society: sometimes many people, many families have a dog only to care home, afraid offenders and related tasks, to achieve a "good guardian", reprehensible acts including physical expressly made ​​to acquire a dog aggressive behavior, there are also cases where dog owners starve them to accentuate this attitude, you can also see dogs who have to sleep in the street next door maybe to add burden that its "function", and examples abound. I would like to draw attention to that attitude, I want the most people would understand that the dog or any other animal cannot be seen as an object that has an use, an utility, and even less to be exploited for that or other abusive purpose.

El Condor, el Cristal y el Arte Academico by susanavillegas
El Condor, el Cristal y el Arte Academico

El Cóndor, el Cristal y el Arte Académico

Inspirado en un sueño: un enorme cóndor de cristal, de unos seis metros de altura aproximadamente, irrumpió de forma estrepitosa y violenta en el taller de la Academia de Bellas Artes de La Paz.

El cóndor andino (Vultur Gryphus), este magnífico animal no precisa mayor presentación, pero sí es importante tener conocimiento de que es una especie que se encuentra casi amenazada porque aún persiste la persecución humana en su contra.

 Según el cóndor andino es asesinado por deporte, también  los agricultores suelen matar ejemplares por considerarlos una plaga porque creen erróneamente que mata a su ganado. Además,  los cóndores  se han visto afectados por pesticidas y otros venenos  adquiridos a través de la ingestión de sus presas, es decir, a través de la cadena alimenticia. Un dato curioso es que los cóndores forman pareja de por vida,  la pérdida de un miembro del tándem tiene un gran impacto en el individuo sobreviviente. En nuestro país, Bolivia, no es raro ver aún plumaje de cóndor utilizado en trajes de danzas folclóricas.

The Condor, the Crystal and Academic Art

Inspired by a dream: a huge condor of  glass, about six meters high, got  in with  violence in a workshop of the Academy of Fine Arts in La Paz.

The Andean Condor (Vultur Gryphus). This magnificent animal needs no further introduction, but it is important to be aware that this species is near threatened because human persecution against it continues.

  According, the Andean condor is killed for sport, also often farmers kill them because they mistakenly believe that they killing their livestock. In addition, the condors have been affected by pesticides and other poisons acquired through ingestion of prey, through the food chain. A curious fact is that condors are partners for life, and the loss of a member of the tandem has a great impact on the surviving individual.In Bolivia it is not uncommon to see nowadays condor feathers used in folk dance costumes.
