“Piña Navideña” is inspired by the representations of women as hopeful and stoic soldiers for the Communist Revolution in paintings and propaganda during the 1920’s. Takes on nationalist sentiments were popularized in yearly calendars when I was growing up in Mexico and put on the walls in the local markets and “carnicerias” (butchershops).
