Moving Day

A very unique tradition from the small towns of the coffee mountains. Since the 1950s in Antioquia, Colombia, there has been a tradition of moving all belongings from one house to the other on a very classic style, everything in the house has to fit in a Willis (Jeep). This curious idea became so popular then, that today, they even have a parade to honor this amazing creativity. And what a better way to pay tribute to it than putting it in a canvas.
