The Weeping Woman by stroggtank The Weeping Woman by stroggtank
Created for a Collective Exhibition in Mexico, as homage for a mexican Rock Band. It depicts my vision of one of many versions of the mexican legend of "The Weeping Woman" (La Llorona) and it is inspired by the song of the same name by the band Caifanes. The legend tells the story of a young woman who has lost her children, even after her death, during nights her spirit keeps weeping in sadness looking for them. Again, this is one of many versions :)

Thanks for watching!

Created in Mudbox & Maya, rendered with mental ray and post in Photoshop.

Very Pretty.

That being said, she actually murdered her children because her lover told her he would stay with her if she did. So she does, and he leaves her for someone else anyway. Historically, it is believed the story dates back to the Aztecs, and the woman who helped Cortez defeat her own people.

I like that version better, more dramatic :P   But yeah, it's one of many, while doing research before doing this pic I found like 6 or 7 versions of the story :O
