Hilos de las montañas by Elsa Fuentes

The piece "Threads on the mountain" is defined as an optical illusion that breaks with the three colors of Puerto Rican traditional flag: white, blue and red.
This brings us to our true identity as Puerto Ricans and children of a Homeland whose colors are born from the Borinquen ground: where we get rid of what colonialism imposes on us, and create an identity based on roots, nuances, culture, flavor and human warmth.
