This mural was painted in 1990 in Acrylic. The complex themes of family, technological progress, and environmental concerns are addressed in this painting. Botello portrays his ambivalence toward technology through a dangerous network of pipes, which are shown expanding beyond the sites of medical miracles and urban development to encroach upon nature. The volcanic eruption suggests that Mother Nature may get the last word.
