Left school. We
Lurk late. We
Strike straight. We
Sing sin. We
Thin gin. We
Jazz June. We
Die soon."

do you ever just get a vibe that someone has a crush on you and then you’re not sure if they actually do or if you’re just really really self-absorbed

The Dhamek Stupa of Sarnath, India.

The Archaeological Survey of India, and many alike, claim this to be the location where Buddha first encountered the five Parivajrakas and delivered the First Sermon.

Built in approximately 500 CE, the Dhamek Stupa is a huge cylindrically shaped stupa (Buddhist commemorative monuments which traditionally usually house sacred relics associated with Buddha), and is about 44m tall, with a diameter of 29m. Around it are 8 niches which are thought to have once contained images. Below these niches is a section of beautifully carved ornamentation, which remains partly preserved today, and highlights the high skill level of stone artisans of the Gupta period.  

A Chinese traveler who visited Sarnath in 638 CE by the name of Hiuen-Tsang records seeing the Dhamek Stupa, and observing over 1,500 priest there.

Alma Lopez
La Llorona Desperately Seeking Coyolxauhqui, 2003
Screenprint
22 x 16 in
Edition of 60

California artist Alma Lopez was added as a special edition of Serie X. Lopez came to Coronado Studio as part of the SALA Project (West San Antonio Meets East Los Angeles). Her print La Llorona Desperately Seeking Coyolxauhqui addresses the murders of women and girls on the US-Mexican border. For over ten years, more than 300 young women and girls have been found tortured and murdered in Juarez, Mexico. Many more are still missing. The print is pink, alluding to the black crosses on pink backgrounds painted by families and friends to represent a missing young woman or girl in Juarez. The background represents the mothers; the Virgen of Guadalupe (the background design of her dress), la Llorona (the silhouette), and the Coatlicue (the necklace). The female figure with the Coyolxauhqui engraved on her chest represents the daughters. The flowers in the foreground represent an offering to an altar or a funeral and the plucking of lives.

“Sometimes you meet someone, and it’s so clear that the two of you, on some level belong together. As lovers, or as friends, or as family, or as something entirely different. You just work, whether you understand one another or you’re in love or you’re partners in crime. You meet these people throughout your life, out of nowhere, under the strangest circumstances, and they help you feel alive. I don’t know if that makes me believe in coincidence, or fate, or sheer blind luck, but it definitely makes me believe in something.”
