The Mexican artist characterized herself by the large number of self-portraits she painted, and in most of them she appeared accompanied by her favorite animals, which, they say, substitute the presence of the children she did not have. In this work she appears dressed and combed like the indigenous women of southeastern Mexico. She painted herself together with “Mr. Xolot”, as she called her itzcuintli dog, and with her spider monkey. In the background, there is a pre-Columbian totem.
