Andrea Castañeda's brightly colored map reflects the biodiversity and rich culture of Honduras. Castañeda's images are filled with blues, reds and yellows to celebrate the natural environment. She also brings to life the country’s cultural history. The cultural roots of Honduras stem from several indigenous peoples-- the most powerful were the Mayans-- who continue to have a strong influence on the country. The map represents Mayan culture as well as the pre-Columbian, Spanish, Creole and African influences that have shaped the country.
