Los Tatakeres, grupo de hombres responsables del arco, despues de una noche de trabajo de decoracion, levantan el arco muy pesado, centimetro por centimetro….El esfuerzo colectivo y el sacrificio,  la responsabilidad individual y colectiva,  la fuerza que se pone por una obra efímera  y el deseo humano de buscar conexiones con el “cielo” son todas partes de los simbólicos aspectos de esta tradición de los Purepechas…

The Tatakeres, group of men responsible for the arch, after a night spent decorating it with natural elements and cempasuchil flowers (marigold), raise the heavy arch centimeter by centimeter. The individual effort and sacrifice, as well as the collective responsibility, the force put on an ephemeral work and the human desire to find connections to the “sky” are all part of the symbolical aspects of this Purepecha tradition  …
