The San Agustin Archaeological Park and the Lost City in the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta have inspired Lydia Azout to investigate the mysticism of ancient peoples and spirituality. It has been these spaces and several others that she has visited throughout her life in Peru, Mexico, Indonesia, and Cambodia that have stimulated her creativity and curiosity.  Similarly, her constant contact with nature evokes the importance of spatiality and natural ecosystems for pre-Hispanic cultures, which used the cosmos as well as rituals to protect and pay tribute to their environment. This frames the magical, energetic, ancestral, and earthly touch of her work.
