Lovely drypoint print of an Axolotl in a Talavera coffee cup. Inspired by our cultura Mexicana, Aztec mythology, and legends. Dedicated to my fellow coffee addicts and axolotl lovers.
Axolotls are also named after the Ancient Aztec god, Xolotl. He was the god of fire, lightning, sickness, and deformities. One legend says the god, Xolotl, got mixed up in the political affairs of the other gods and feared he would be banished or lose his life. He decided to transform himself into an Axolotl to elude capture.
