Just found this old colored pencil drawing of a young aboriginal woman. I drew her some years ago from a tiny photo in a NatGeo magazine. I don't know what tribal culture she is part of, but I thought her face was captivating.

La Corua is a water serpent that lives in springs of water and protects them. According to Sonoran folk beliefs, if one killed the Corua, the spring would dry up. La Corua represents the essence of life in the desert. In Mexico, snakes are also associated with rain and thunderstorms.
