Izta in Art

Popo and Izta are not just there for climbers....Mexican mythology and folklore depends on them. They are a prominent feature of artwork, and paintings of the two, together or individually can be found all over the place. On walls in offices commonly, but there is also a restaurant in the centre of the city with a huge mural of the two. The paintings below hang in the excellent Museo de Franz Mayer, and I thought I'd share them here.
