Inspired by the conquista of the Americas by the Spaniards, Mexican artist Jose Martin Levario creates this energetic and thought-provoking composition. In a deadly embrace, a pre-Hispanic warrior dressed as a hawk wrestles with a Spanish knight as they stab each other with their spears, swords, and knives. The artist hopes to express the fusion of two different races with this composition, realized with a technique known as popotillo, where dyed stems of the silver beardgrass plant are diligently applied to paper. This artwork arrives within a wood frame.
