The Museum of Urban and Contemporary Art in Munich commissioned the mural entitled Chalchihuite
Chalchihuite is the name of Munich’s largest mural, made by Mexican artist and calligrapher Said Dokins, commissioned by the Museum of Urban and Contemporary Art (MUCA).
Located in the heart of Munich, the mural refers to a mystical idea of protection and energy provided by jade stones. It also integrates fragments of the poem Time by Syrian poet Ali Ahmad Said’s, also known by the pen name Adonis.
Dokin’s piece is part of The Art of Writing, an exhibition featuring graffiti and calligraphy artists such as Tarek Benaoum, Patrick Hartl, L’Atlas and JonOne.
