Warbonnet, the triumph symbol
‘Quinta Integral’ is the perception of the contemporary woman of XXI century, the one whom is represented as a fighter and a winner. The woman is carring a colourful Warbonet in the same way as the Native Americans. This piece was composed of feathers that the Indians added to their attire when hunting, specifically on the head.
In the Indian culture, placing a feathered Warbonnet on the head after hunting an eagle or a hawk symbolized triumph. It meant that these Indians had previously gone through a war which they had survived, and from which they had emerged victorious.
A Warbonnet is a triumph over life. Adding it in my artworks to the figure of the woman also gives it a very special meaning. I thus represent a woman triumphant over life, who comes out of it victorious. A vision that I want to transcend the contemporary world in which we live.
