Details

Making fun of death is the custom for Day of the Dead, and Marina Pallares portrays her as a drunken dancer balancing tequila bottles on her head. Pallares presents her as the number 12 card in her original interpretation of Mexico's lotería, a unique version of the classic bingo game featuring traditional images. The loteria made its appearance in the second half of the 18th century, and it is still a favorite at schools, fairs, carnivals and festivals. "I grew up in Jalisco, known for the production of tequila from agave plants, and as a child I used to play lotería all the time. These two facts inspired me to create the 'Tequila Lotto' series," confides Pallares, who credits the influence of Leopoldo Méndez and José Guadalupe Posada in her work. She masters aquafortis and aquatint etching techniques to create this eloquent composition.

Ms. Pallares just does exquisite work. Im on a budget but have slowly collected 4 of her pieces. Every single one is beautifully made, and brightens my mood every time I look at them.

"I loved this cat."

I bought 3 of these, two as gifts and one for myself. The expression on this cats face is priceless. What he is thinking will be your own interpretation, and will say more about you, than him. But he is obviously thinking.
