Max Morales: Ajolote

Stunning axolotl, Mexican walking fish, by artist Max Morales. Axolotls are not really fish but salamanders. Unfortunately, they are almost extinct. Mexico is working on conserving axolotls by building axolotl shelters and conserving potential habitats for the salamanders.  This beautiful woodcarving is elegantly painted with the classic Morales pointillism technique and lovely codex symbols such as a butterfly, a salamander, and jaguar.
