Juan Chuk was fishing in his little boat in the area of Ojo Azul and fell asleep for a moment. He was very surprised when he felt the boat kicking and thought it was a dream. An enormous octopus, green and monstrous, had climbed into the boat and was reaching for him. Horrified, he started praying to the Dark-Skinned Lady of Tepeyac and saw two little angels appear to help him fight against the creature. The octopus went away and took the net with his catch of the day. Juan gave thanks for staying alive and dedicate this retablo.
