The principle objective of this concept is to reconcile the greater public with the art world, to bridge the void, and put it quality art within reach of every collector.We believe that the traditional galleries have closed their doors to new talents. The politics and high prices have distanced the public from something as beautiful and universal as art. We have the ambition to fill this niche by offering our clients original works of art, created by talented artists (young, emerging, established) from all over the world, with different theme and techniques for any particular style, taste and budget--as quality and creativity are the principle characteristics of the work. « less

It is constructed with rustic materials representing the womb and mother earth. Working with its four elements: earth, water, air and fire to purify and harmonize the mind, body, and soul, we will create a perfect balance to enhance our general wellbeing. The healing properties of the temazcal are varied, from anti-stress, to stimulating the nervous and the circulatory systems, to purifying your airways. With their aromatic herbs, it goes beyond a pleasant bath to a purification of many of the body’s primary systems such as the respiratory, skeletal, and digestive systems. Once the temazcal ceremony is finished, we are ready to freshen up in a cenote. « less
