Martin Xuana: A Grain of Hope

This unique, rustic wood scene created by Martin Xuana is called "Un Grano de Esperanza", A Grain of Hope. It features a family of farmers; the father, mother, and children. The father is growing corn, while the mother is making masa to make tortillas. Meanwhile, their children, a boy, and a girl are studying, each with their own book. The children are the hope, la esperanza of the family. The dream the parents have for their children to succeed in life, to have a better future and opportunities than they had. This piece was part of the National Folk Art Contest 2017.
