Mexico Lindo

 The beginning of Porfirio Díaz’s rule in Mexico resulted in the creation of a new Mexican national identity based on its Pre-Columbian past and manifested in Mexico’s modern arts. In 1913, José Guadalupe Posada created a famous print called "La Calavera de la Catrina" as a parody of a Mexican upper class female. In addition to the indigenous and Catholic traditions, the satirical portrayal of death in the form of a skeleton has since become associated with The Day of the Dead. This section includes La Catrina, Soldaderas, Revolucionarios, Frida Kahlo, and Ballet Folklorico.
