LA TUMBA DE LA REINA ROJA

INTRODUCTION

The discovery of La Tumba De La Reina Roja (The Tomb of the Red Queen) in Palenque, Mexico in 1994 represented a major Mayan archeological find and inspired the first of Ricardo Mazal’s great Trilogy exploring human mortality and burial. Known as the “red queen” due to the fact that her remains were entombed in a sarcophagus filled with a powder of bright red cinnabar, she and her jungle surroundings rise again in Mazal’s brilliantly colorful abstractions. A perfect rectangle of red powdered pigment (Mazal’s first employment of installation elements) appeared on the floor in the center of the museums where this work was first exhibited.
