MALMA 2012 Universo Blend Patagonia Argentina
The vastness of Patagonia describes a boundless universe. The ancient Mapuches regarded stars as deities and the Southern Cross constellation as the footprint of a Ñandú, the sacred animal. The thousands of stars surrounding this constellation were pictured as “boleadoras” catching the Ñandú, Mapuches’ sacred food. Our sky, blessed by the original civilizations, describes what only few chosen people can learn and appreciate, our Patagonian Universe.
