This photo creates an interesting commentary on the relationship of the ancient religion and traditions of Mexico (the volcanos) and the common religion of today (the Christian cross). The two volcanoes in the background, Popocatepatl and Iztaccihuatl, are part of an ancient epic romance that ended in tragedy. Izta was a princess in love with the warrior Popo. But she was tricked into thinking that Popo died in battle and died herself of a broken heart. Popo returned victorius to claim the hand of the princess, only to find her dead. He carried off her body and had his men build a platform for her body and another for him to stand vigil on, always watching over her. As the story goes, the two lovers, turned into the two volcanoes, one sleeping and the other active, still watching over his love. This photo pays honor to the Christian religion of the present, while acknowledging the ancient traditions of the past, that cannot ever be forgotten.
