Mexican Wall Painting

When I was in Cancun, Mexico, I stayed at the RIU Caribe all-inclusive resort hotel. I was drawn to this artwork which was on the wall in the lounge area of the main lobby. I couldn't keep my eyes off of it, so I had to take a picture of it. It was hand painted and appeared to be three dimensional. This type of artwork always appealed to me and it sort of reminds me of the kind of stuff you would see in the late 60s or early 70s. Another interesting thing about this particular painting is that an airbrush was not was all done by brush. I have no idea why this particular image was used on the wall there in that particular place, nor do I know why there are so many eyes. Surely it must have some sort of significance. The RIU Caribe hotel was utterly destroyed by a hurricane and their official website indicates that they have rebuilt completely since. I bet this artwork is still there.
