Means tropical steel, but sounds way better in Spanish.
This whole series started with my weird obsession to find faces in inanimate objects. There I was up on the roof helping my favorite handy man, when I started noticing tropical animals carved in our tools. Maybe it was the desert heat, maybe it was hunger mixed with tropical homesickness, but an idea was born. So took a few pictures of the tools and with a mechanic mouse started carving out the faces inside the metal.
Evolution is a funny thing. Maybe this is the way our animals will survive global warming killing their habitats. Then again, maybe I should just eat something..
