Chespirito

‘Piggy-backing’ on Galavision’s celebration of Chespirito’s 35 years of fun entertainment for children of all ages, I would like to invite you to visit ‘La Vecindad del Chavo del Ocho’ and celebrate Chespirito’s 35 years in my art gallery featuring some of Chespirito’s characters (with a twist, of course) such as El Chavo del Ocho, La Chilindrina, Quico, Doña Florinda, Don Ramon, El Chapulin Colorado: http://gabrielnavar.com/chespirito.htm.

The image is from the Florentine Codex. The codex depicts a priest performing a human sacrifice with a flint knife. The victim is shown held by priests and the throbbing heart was ripped out and offered to the sun to keep the universe in motion. In my version, the heart is replaced by a red “designer” iPad. Now… was the gadget extracted from the sacrificial victim and then offered to the sun? Or, are the priests getting ready to document the victim before the sacrifice actually takes place (perhaps, you tube “uploading”)?
