Jesus’s artist statement:
Cempazúchitl (Flowers for the Dead)
Marigolds in Mexican Spanish are called
Cempazúchitl, a word borrowed from
Nahuatl, the Aztec language.
The lower part of the tapestry is the underworld
with crosses and marigolds. The upper half depicts
the ascending souls of the dead. The tapestry is
my personal memorial to remember those
who have died from COVID-19 around the world.
