My Work

Welcome and thanks for visiting. My Name is Livia Nieves. The drawings displayed here are a small collection I hold close to my heart. They are about 9 x 6 inches, paper, made with markers and pens. I call this serie of drawings "Folkloric Hearts" because all the shapes displayed inside the hearts are a recreation of the most common Puerto Rican petroglyphs found around the island in caves and in large river boulder. I'm particualarly amazed that these shapes are still showing and even new ones are been found all around the island anytime floods uncover them or during large constructions. The original petroglyphs shapes pre-date Columbus' arrival to Puerto Rico in 1493, and were probably made many centuries earlier. Feel free to also visit my Taino Sun Symbols collection at livianieves.com
