An armless, standing human figure holding something on the shoulders
The main topic of Juárez is maintained, the references to the pre-Hispanic cultures of central Mexico, the human figure automatically recalls the "Atlantes" of Tula. Another distinctive feature is the use of leg bracelets with geometric designs considered typical of pre-Hispanic times.
The upper part can hardly be considered human, but following the title track it alludes to Mozart, a well-known musician and composer, as such there are allusions to music. On his chest a series of vertical parallel lines refers to the pentagram the place where the music is writte. En la cabeza a manera de abstracción se pueden interpretar una concentración de algunas figuras musicales, corcheas en algunas de sus variantes las cuales sirven para marcar los tiempos de las notas sobre el pentagrama.
