The Magic of the Cities.

Zen promotes the rediscovery of the obvious, which is so often lost in its familiarity and simplicity. It sees the miraculous in the common and magic in our everyday surroundings. When we are not rushed, and our minds are unclouded by conceptualizations, a veil will sometimes drop, introducing the viewer to a world unseen since childhood. ~ John Greer

The Gift

“The creation of something new is not accomplished by the intellect but by the play instinct acting from inner necessity. 
The creative mind plays with the objects it loves. ”

Los Reyes Magos / Three Wise Men

The city of León, is the fifth most populous city in Mexico and the first in the state of Guanajuato. It is also the seat of the municipality of León. It has a strong leather industry, offering shoes, boots, belts, jackets, and other leather accessories both to national and international markets.

In Christian tradition the Magi (Greek: μάγοι, magoi), Three Wise Men, Three Kings or Kings from the East are said to have visited Jesus after his birth, bearing gifts. They are mentioned only in the Gospel of Matthew (Mt 2) , which says that they came "from the east to Jerusalem" to worship the Christ, "born King of the Jews". Because three gifts were recorded, there are traditionally said to have been three Magi, though Matthew does not specify their number.

[ Los Reyes Magos (también conocidos como los Magos de Oriente) es el nombre por el que tradicionalmente se denomina a los visitantes que, tras el nacimiento de Jesús de Nazaret, acuden desde países extranjeros para rendirle homenaje y entregarle regalos de gran riqueza simbólica: oro, incienso y mirra. En muchos países (en especial los hispanohablantes) existe la tradición de representar a los tres Reyes trayendo los regalos que los niños les han pedido en sus cartas durante la noche anterior a la Epifanía -Enero 6- ].
