the dissemination of the secrets.


Cuban artist Belkis Ayón Manso creates these amazing dark works based on the Abukuá Secret Society:

"I aspire above all to give my vision, my points of view as observer, presenting in a synthesized form the aesthetic, plastic, and poetic aspects I discovered in Abakuá, persistently relating them to the nature of man, with vivid personalities, with feelings which sometimes grip us, feelings we don't know how to define, with these fugitive emotions…with the spiritual."

i found very little on her as her works aren't allowed to leave cuba, but if you do a google image search you can see more of her terrific work.
