Nando Murio, Casa de Acuario (House of Aquarius), silk-screen, Concordia Publishing, Mexico, 2020, ed. 40

I'm not exactly sure what is going in this rather delicate screen print, but there seems to be a number of primordial figures and creatures moving around in an indeterminate kind of landscape. 

The zodiac element for Aquarius is air, and its symbol is Ganymede, the water-carrier. Ganymede was the son of Tros, who just happened to be the king of Troy. Zeus fell in love with him, and ever since that time Ganymede served as the cupbearer of the gods [wikipedia]. This accordion appears to be illustrating some of the adventures and mis-adventures visited upon our poor hero. Either way a cool accordion by this master printer from Querera, Mexico.

Sixteen pages, single page 6.5" x 3.5". When fully opened 2ft 11".
