The Bass Stage (IXCACO) – Cosmic Convergence Festival, Guatemala

A collaboration with the artist Selva Bhavari. The theme was ‘IXCACO, the Mayan goddess of Chocolate’ who represents fertility, the Earth and the Feminine. Inspiration for the deco was from the Cacao Flower, which was made from plants and flowers, and the Cacao Tree, the inspiration for the main stage structure, which made from bamboo and covered in coconut leaves.

Materials:
Bamboo, bamboo splits, coconut and palm leaves, corozo plant, corn husks, banana flowers, fresh flowers and plants from the land, wood, vine, mangey rope, wire, thread rod.
