Sometimes realistic, sometimes magical, the art of Colima celebrates the diverse animal life of ancient Mexico. The coatimundi is a raccoon-like the creature native to the Americas. Its ears are pointed and its snout is long and flexible, traits the artist has captured here with great energy. Skilled climbers, coatis forage for food on the ground and in trees; this plump, sleek fellow appears to be eating some tidbit. Radiating charm and humor, he speaks of culture in harmony with its natural surroundings. - (PF.1403)
