Product Description

California artist Alma Lopez was added as a special edition of Serie X. Lopez came to Coronado Studio as part of the SALA Project (West San Antonio Meets East Los Angeles). Her print La Llorona Desperately Seeking Coyolxauhqui addresses the murders of women and girls on the US-Mexican border. For over ten years, more than 300 young women and girls have been found tortured and murdered in Juarez, Mexico. Many more are still missing. The print is pink, alluding to the black crosses on pink backgrounds painted by families and friends to represent a missing young woman or girl in Juarez. The background represents the mothers; the Virgen of Guadalupe (the background design of her dress), la Llorona (the silhouette), and the Coatlicue (the necklace). The female figure with the Coyolxauhqui engraved on her chest represents the daughters. The flowers in the foreground represent an offering to an altar or a funeral and the plucking of lives.
