Stylized animals represent a tribute to fatherhood by Carlos Angrigiani. He depicts a sleek turquoise platypus he names Toto, and his young. The artisan begins with modeling clay and adds successive layers of wax to create a prototype with the desired textures to make a mold. The final sculptures come to life in resin and cement, protected with a coat of varnish. "I like to think of creating these sculptures on a large scale as part of Mexico City's urban landscape," the artist confides. "They carry a message of family love."
