Approaching the Nagual

[Skip the intro & start the journey]

These images are based on the books by Carlos Castaneda, which depict a young man's transformative journey into a world of sorcery, mystery and spirituality.

This work represents a celebration of the journey to the unknown.

This is not meant to be an academic interpretation of the concepts and ideas handed from Don Juan Matus to Castaneda, but a personal one, which is why I cast the affable representation of Silent Bob the nagualin the role of Carlitos. [Given the premise that the figurines are “actors” in visual/cinematic plays for Sierra Unreality Studios, Silent Bob turned out be an inspired casting choice.]

The images are a personal interpretation of ideas presented in the books as I perceived them.

The quotes used in the images (so far) come from Tales of Power, The Art of Dreaming and The Power of Silence and The Second Ring of Power.
