Cactus Gallery LA
EL CAZO #36 (The Billycan) by artist Opal Unicorn (Laura Castellanos)
Acrylic on wood, 8” x 10” framed to 9" x 11"
Opal Unicorn was inspired by the Latino folk term ~ Como aqua para chocolate ~ (Like Water For Chocolate), which can be interpreted to mean you've reached your boiling point and are ready to explode in anger or a more sensual meaning, as in the movie of the same name. It is a metaphor for describing a state of passion or sexual arousal.
