This is a portrait of Stella Blanca depicted as an Aztec Queen. While developing this portrait, I was inspired by listening to Stella’s story and heritage. The Aztec people ruled south central Mexico over 500 years ago. They called themselves the Meshica. The Meshica rulers adorned their heads with elaborate headdresses made of rare quetzal tail feathers and gold. Though the Aztec civilization came to an end, much of their art and culture lives on today in the Mexican people.
