MaRula - Xocolatl


Mixed media acrylic / oil on canvas , 80 cm | 60 cm

A couple of years back I read about Malinche. She was the mistress of the great spanish conquerer Cortés. In Mexico she was known as both a traitor and a heroine. Her story has impressed me lastingly – just as so many other stories of great women. Her fate is unknown for the most parts because it simply was not written down – just like the lives of so many other women. This painting is dedicated to her.
