Details

Working in a surreal style, Enrique Ruiz paints a landscape filled with Mexican symbolism. The canvas takes the colors of the flag — green, white and red. As with the flag, an eagle centers the composition but is depicted in the style of Aztec art. The Aztecs, or Mexica as they called themselves, left their island town to seek a new place to establish their home. Legend tells how, when they saw an eagle perched on a cactus with a serpent in is claws, this would be the place they were seeking, and this image appears in the country's national seal. The artist gives this snake the same style as the bird, alluding to Quetzalcoatl, the "feathered serpent." Their island, located in Lake Texcoco, is brimming with fish in this beautiful allegory, and their world is beautiful.

Titled "Expresión de la naturaleza" in Spanish.
