HA NARI, PATZUN

Acrylic on board, 39 x 26.5 inches. Estimate $600.

 

Ha Nari is a much-used Cachiquel expression. It signifies agreement, “So it is.” It is used in familiar jargon in the same manner and with the same frequency as Americans use “OK”.

 

Don Inocente Chauluk is sitting in front of the door to his house.  Written in chalk on the door is my lesson in Cachiquel – “NUM CHUC – tengo hambre” – (I’m hungry).
