These discs by Fernando Mastrangelo are made with red and black beans, corn, turquoise or black sugar, corn meal, and Red Arbol Chili. The intricate detail and elaborate construction is meant, in part, to replicate Aztec mythology and methods of construction.
The plates were given Aztec-inspired names like, Xochipilli (god of art) and Centeotl (male god of Maize). These discs by Fernando Mastrangelo are able to create a proposed narrative regarding commodity production and culture. Mastrangelo’s work comments on how citizens of developed countries live largely estranged from the conditions that provide their most basic commodities, such as oil, sugar, iron, rice and corn.
