The theme of the research is the Mexican culture; data was collected through interviews and photographs in the city's downtown. In 2011, the most conservative professional surveys like Parametria, marks a 70 percent rejection of bullfighting, the rest is between doubtful and fans. A new era is among us in which violence stay in the past.
The main challenge was to develop a piece with a multifaceted aesthetic geometric shape formed by 162 polysurfaces. Prototypes were made to select the size and material of the piece; wooden models, 3d prints and handcrafted aluminum casting. Another challenge was to seek an antidote to clarify the relationship between what is stated and the different positions of society.
