The Salvadoran-American award-winning artist, Karlisima, is having a solo art exhibition, entitled, "Lord, the Garden of Eden."  Her paintings capture her Mayan Heritage, as they are reminiscent of her childhood, spent in the luscious natural paradise of "Sonsonate," (which in the Mayan, Nahuatl, and native language means "400 rivers of water.") This is a rural town in El Salvador, where she spent unforgettable summers swimming at the river "Pescadito de Oro" ("The Little Golden Fish.")  Her paintings depict the symbolic meaning of angels, shamans, and elements of Mother Nature, bringing her Catholic upbringing together with her Mayan beliefs. Trees are symbols of our connection with Mother Earth /Mother Nature and with the Land, as she gives us an ecological alert to "take care of Mother Nature." "We are one with the Land, and, thus, we must protect it, plant trees and recycle in order to save ourselves from self-destruction."
