Description
This lithograph depicts a tree in Angangueo, Michoacán, Mexico. The region is known for its mining and the migration of the Monarch butterflies which turn the trees orange in the sanctuaries that have been set aside for them. O'Higgins adds a small home and a figure at the base of the tree to give the composition a sense of scale.
