Oaxaca is situated in a beautiful one hundred mile long valley. A very large mesa, topped with ruined temples and ball courts, overlooks the valley and is ringed by mountains tinged with an exquisite shade of lavender.
I was once in an old pharmacy in Oaxaca and the labels on the bottles had the same scintillating design as seen in this painting. It was as though the contents within the bottles contained a combination of zing and healing. I don’t know what the mystics say but I feel Oaxaca is one of the chakras of the world.
