Oil and acrylic on panel "In Mexican folklore, 'La Llorona' is rumoured to be the spirit of a woman grieving over the loss of her drown children and now cries while searching for them in the river, causing misfortune to those who encounter or hear her. I had first heard of the folklore as a teen while delving into the meaning behind a song titled 'La Llorona', which was featured in the 2002 film 'Frida'. I enjoyed both the Lila Downs and Chavela Vargas covers of the song and thus became fascinated by the legend as well."
