The emerald has been present throughout the history of Colombia dragging with it sorrows and joys from pre-Hispanic times until today. Its mountains, dwellings of the gods according to the beliefs of the Muzo indigenous, shelter the emerald inside and they act as a vehicle towards a unique experience. According to popular legends that instant of encounter with the stone is surrounded by an enigma.
Flor de Roca proposes an exercise in the search for (the life around) emeralds, tracing a journey through the mystery that surrounds the stone, focusing on the guaquería as a mining practice on the way to extinction. The passing of the pages symbolizes the earth movement carried out by the guaqueros in search of emeralds. It is a book that allows the readers to trace that piece of land through the use of intonso, and find the images that would lead them on a journey.
