Fanciful Mexican Vibora de la Mar Giclee Print on Canvas, "Serpent of the Sea"
A colorful and fanciful serpent flies through the air above the vast and peaceful ocean. Its face and form derive from Aztec portrayals of Quetzalcoatl, the revered plumed serpent deity. Above in the night sky, the moon reveals features reminiscent of ancient Olmec art. This delightful composition by Madero is replete with Mexican symbolism.
He takes his imagery from a traditional children's game known as "La Víbora de la Mar," or "serpent of the sea." Similar to "London Bridge," children line up and, holding on to one another's waist, they run beneath the outstretched arms of two children who clasp hands to form an arch. The very catchy song is sung and the child beneath the arch when the last verse ends is out.
