Kartutscho

Guatemala, “país de la eterna primavera“: Guatemala, “Land of eternal spring“, as Humboldt called it because of its climate and the breathtaking diversity of its flora. Moreover, Guatemala is also a very diverse country in cultural terms: 22 ethnic groups, whose traditional costumes fill the country with a kaleidoscope of colours, find another expression in Guatemala’s famous textiles. Indian women in colourful traditional costumes are collecting fragrant calla lilies (called “cartuchos” in the country itself) in the highlands, on the shores of brooks and ponds. Their hands, tanned by the sun, bind these flowers together to sell them as magnificent bouquets in the market: “Kartutscho“ is the synthesis of these images from my native country. Guatemala embraces the world with a bouquet of its most beautiful flowers.
