Mexican street artist Curiot is back in his old stomping grounds. On a visit to Mexico City, the ultra-talented artist spent some time putting up a strange and mystical mural. Curiot is known for his exquisitely detailed pieces and magical subject matter, and his latest work offers no shortage of either. The piece depicts a mysterious creature, possibly some kind of reptile, that has a variety of brightly colored fauna and flora exploding from its back. It’s head appears to be stuck inside several flowers, and there is a stony leg emerging from the creature’s side. All in all, the finished product is as stunning as it is baffling.
