Details

A musician dressed in traditional costume serenades the agave in card number 23 of Marina Pallares' exclusive interpretation of Mexico's lotería. It is a unique version of the classic bingo game featuring traditional images. The loteria made its appearance in the second half of the 18th century, and it is still a favorite at schools, fairs, carnivals and festivals. "I grew up in Jalisco, known for the production of tequila from agave plants, and as a child I used to play lotería all the time. These two facts inspired me to create the 'Tequila Lotto' series," confides Pallares, who credits the influence of Leopoldo Méndez and José Guadalupe Posada in her work. She masters aquafortis and aquatint etching techniques to create this eloquent composition.

"A gift for my husband.."

I just love the Tequila Lotto series. This was a gift for my bass player husband and has a place of honor in our music room along with El Mariachi and El Diablito! They make a beautiful, bold display with contrasting black and white mats......I plan to continue collecting from this series....I am a Marina Pallares fan!

"Lost during framed process"

I was on my way to have this beautiful jaguar to be professionally framed when the strong persistent wind blew it away. It hurt me very bad. It was very unique but for the price, I will replace it with a larger print at less cost.

"Beautiful little print"

I love her creative and detailed little prints- this one will be a gift for a friend for Christmas. I have placed it in an 8x8 wooden frame, matted to 4x4, and it looks wonderful and classy. VERY high quality paper.

"Beautiful and unique"

This is a great little print on VERY quality paper. Since it is small, I used a 8x8 mat and frame, and it looks great.
