Figure 6. Oferendas (Offerings). Boxes and suitcases serve as depositories for audience messages and personal “suitcases.”
A two-tiered luggage stand with a closed box on its lower shelf and an open suitcase on its top surface. The box on the lower shelf is made of rattan and tan leather, with metal hinges and clasps and tan leather belts holding it closed. The vintage suitcase holds colored tulle scarves and small boxes made of colored paper. The inside surface of the open suitcase lid bears dribbles of thick colorful paint and a cross constructed out of small boxes full of colorful artifacts.
