This brushed aluminum and enameled panel depicting an owl in the frontal, flattened Mayan glyph style was done by the Mexican artist Orozco. For the Mayans, Aztec, and Teotihuacaneroc, owls were the messengers of the god of death as well as nocturnal animals of deviance and mischief. Recent evidence suggests that the Mayan owl is interchangeable with the Tlaloc, or Rain God in Aztec glyphs.
