Women were always considered bad luck for the mine. They have been working alongside men for a long time.

The difference in remuneration for work, poor knowledge of mining work, danger in the galleries (exposed to a series of accidents), and shared beliefs among miners that "work inside mines is not for women" , causes them to feel diminished and undervalued. Thus, a majority choose to leave the galleries and engage in open-pit mining work, practically in clearing or tailings.

They live in an unfavorable context, the product of a historical process of violence, colonization and displacement.

Cerro de Potosí, also known as the Cerro Rico de Potosí, and in the Quechua language as Sumaj Orck'o ("beautiful hill"); named Sumaj Orck'o before its plunder and subsequent exploitation, which began 476 years ago. Now, "beautiful hill" seems ironic.

The Mines of Potosí were and still remain an important mining center located on the Cerro Rico de Potosí, Bolivia. Cerro Rico, with more than 4500 meters high and bordered by miles of tunnels of the inexhaustible mines of Potosí, which contributed to the Spanish Empire and all of Europe during the time of the conquest of America, more silver than any other place in the world. Its exploitation, alive in the 21st century, was one of the great reasons for the growth of the "old continent" from the 16th century, at the cost of the forced labor of indigenous slaves and countless corpses throughout the centuries.

The city of Potosí still lives in the shadow of Cerro Rico. The exploitation of the mines continues to be the base of the local economy and, two centuries after being an independent country, Bolivia has failed to put an expiration date on the galleries where many workers, including children, continue to lose their lives. About 15,000 workers descend daily in very hard conditions to the Bolivian mines. At more than 80 meters below ground level, the temperature rises to 40 degrees Celsius. Air is an unclassifiable soup where moisture, dust and particles of silver, sulfur and arsenic are mixed. Lethal combination. Few of those who work in these painful conditions exceed 45 years of life expectancy but, even so, men work daily in the bowels of the mountain.

The Potosi mines are some of the oldest in Latin America, still operating for half a millennium. These mines are also an open wound from the colonization in America.

The mountains also cry: Potosi

From ART3.io and British Journal of Photography, Decade of Change is a global photography exhibition dedicated to the defining issue of our time: the climate crisis.

Curated by leaders in art, science, activism and beyond, the work shines a light on the strength and fragility of the natural world; the indirect impacts on communities and everyday people, and our global efforts to turn things around.

Now, exclusively on OpenSea, ART3 presents a special selection of artworks from the exhibition. Spanning humankind to wildlife and cityscapes to ecosystems, these NFTs represents a snapshot of a pivotal moment in our history — celebrating all that we have to protect, cautioning all that we have to lose, and urging all of us to fight for our planet.

200 trees will be planted for every NFT sold via our reforestation partner Eden. Minted on Polygon.
