Esta Mina, which translates roughly as “this is a mine” was made in response to various books from the Burgoa collection. On the one hand, it takes into account the larvae holes found in Athanasius Kircher's “Subterranean Worlds”, and on the other it takes on the classification drive embodied in various natural history volumes such as those by Aldrovandi's.
