MARE MAGVM: The Arrival'.

 

"MARE MAGNVM: The Arrival" does not refer to a single or specific event. No information is given about the origin of the characters or their personal history. Their faces are not visible, covered by papier-mâché masks typical of Peñafiel's native Ecuador, which both humanise and depersonalise these characters. The identity of these people remains temporarily and culturally ambiguous, and an unspecific costume transforms them into archetypal representatives of any diaspora.
