She's one of the most iconic images of the Day of the Dead celebration, and is so beloved she gets a parade all of her own.
It was aimed at Mexican natives who Posada felt were trying to adopt European aristocratic traditions and deny their own cultural heritage in the pre-revolutionary era, even if it meant starving.
