A distinctively Mexican folk art form, a pi√±ata swings back and forth, enticing children and adults alike. Paper streamers dance from the colorful cones that give it a star shape. Originating in Italy, this popular Christmas star in Mexico represents the seven deadly sins. Thus, smashing the pi√±ata overcomes evil. Mercedes Collado works in watercolor for her festive painting, filling the composition with joyous colors. She presents it in a mat board passe-partout.
Titled 'Pi√±ata mexicana' in Spanish.
