Iztepetl is the third level of the afterlife, a place with a steep hill covered in sharp obsidians.
From the series "Camino al Mictlan"
-Mictlan is the underworld of Aztec mythology and consists of nine distinct levels. Aztecs believed that when we die, we travel through the various levels. Throughout this series, the artist explores the levels of Mictlan in the context of a number of existential questions such as Who are we? What Are we? Why are we? Where do we go? How do we get there?
