Los Mutantes is a work comprised of 170 plates that combine characters from ancient and modern mythologies. Similar to a periodic table, the origin of myths is organized by an axis in which animals and objects are combined with humans (male or female), providing a rational framework for the irrational products of human imagination.
A cartesian matrix like this needs to follow certain rules. All figures are half-human, half-something. Characters that talk, such as Fritz the Cat or Donald Duck, are excluded, as well as oddities and chimeras without recognizable human features.
