The yellow or Maracuya colors of this room were to express the brightness of energy for the start of the day to remind me of the sunrise over Egypt and Morocco, that is so full and bright with not a cloud in the sky.

The artwork has come from my trip to Thailand and Indonesia (each mask come from a different region like; Sumatra , Jakarta, down to Bali. They are all handmade and is part of the ceremony dance of the region. There is also Indigenous masks and bedding from the Kuna tribe here in Panama which I hope to sell and promote sewing for my local Indigenous neighbors.
