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.

Looks more Native American than Mexican Indian (but I suppose they looked similar), but it is a very beautiful piece.

The version I read was that she drowned her own children and as pennance searches for them every night near the river she drowned them in.
