This work is a result of a commission from the  San Jose Sharks organization. They wanted the artist to create a concept and a image that would be favorably accepted by the Hispanic community in the introduction of professional hocky in Northern California. Delgado decided in order to do this he would reach into the proud indigenous  ancestery.  He reseached the symbols of the shark from various indigenous people reaching from Alaska to South America. Then he incorporated these designs into a reconizable and honored symbol, the famous Aztec Calandar. He then incorporated the Shark logo in the middle to appear as stone with a terra cotta brushing. The inscription "Arriba Los Tiburones" was a slogan used by the sports writer, Mark Purdy, of the San Jose Mercury News in his reference to the Sharks. This design proved to be a widely popular and was a great success in introducing the San Jose Sharks to the Latino population.
