Strolling around art colony of Tubac I found a human size strange sculpture depicting a woman with long neck decorated in African style and head directed 180 degrees back to front. She had raised upper limbs in shape of fish flippers. The sculpture looked like creations of Spanish surrealist Salvador Dali I saw in his famous Dalí Theatre and Museum in Figueres, Spain (Catalonia). Maybe that's why this artwork was put behind an iron fence, noone to steel it :-).

Seriously speaking there is more Mexican art influenced by pre-historic cultures of the Olmec, the Maya and the Aztecs than Spanish art in Tubac galleries and boutiques. However I've found typical Spanish or Portoguese "azulejo" (painted, tin-glazed, ceramic tilework) advertising Clee's of Tubac, a store of Arizonian pottery. See picture 5.
