Fundacionochoabrazos
Fundacionochoabrazos contributes to the emotional health of children with limited resources diagnosed with leukaemia, cancer and related diseases and who come to Cali for medical treatment. Its purpose is to make their lives happier and more entertaining during the process of their treatment, with playful programmes, so that the children can be nourished with affection and joy as the best recipe of love to reduce the levels of anxiety and stress generated by medical treatments.

Melcocha
I imagine that the sculpture of the ram is connected to the indigenous totem, which attributes to the ram's qualities such as determination, action, strength, energy, courage and dominance, among others. Therefore, I would paint the figure with strong colours; greens, fuchsias, oranges, neon colours typical of the nature of the country I come from. I would paint ancient symbols in many colours with these images, which, however, are united in the ram, offering harmony and a balance of life: spirals, diamonds, molluscs and the iconography of the Wayuu. I would end with the birth of plants and flowers, and from then on, I would let my imagination guide me until I have fully completed the work.

Ram for use inside and outside.
Size is approx. 75 x 40 x 68 cm (Width x Depth x Height) and weight is approx. 23 kg (ram + base).
