Tropical Olmec
Artistic expression of Olmec culture.


Tropical Olmec. Within my proposals, I could not miss the so-called "mother" of the Mesoamerican cultures. For this reason, I have designed an illustration of a transmedial type that has the most characteristic of the front; The famous Olmec Heads and an animal that lives in the area where this culture flourished and which gave rise to many tales and legends: The Tlacuache. The chromatic palette was generated from the colors of the selvatic zones of the Mexican southeast.
