Details

Day of the Dead traditions make their way to Marina Pallares' exclusive interpretation of Mexico's lotería, as card number 28. It is 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.

"Beautiful and unique"

This is a great little print on VERY quality paper. Since it is small, I used a 8x8 mat and frame, and it looks great.

Beautiful and detailed jaguar on VERY high quality paper. I have her little dog, parrot, and octopus prints also, and they are all great. Because it s a little print, I framed using an 8x8 mat and frame.

"Beautiful"

I loved this the second I saw it, and had just gotten a new job and apartment, so I splurged. The quality is fantastic, and seeing it on my wall makes me smile every day. Ive since also purchased the Jaguar print from Ms. Pallares, and hope to add another print in the future -- shes just an overall wonderful artist.

I bought this as a rememberance for some friends who lost their dog. The joy in the Perrito just reflected the joy that their dog always brought me. Just lovely.
