The woman's identity is not known, but the artist has stated that he drew influence from William H. Prescott 1843 History of the Conquest of Mexico, indicating a political motive. She bears a wound below her right breast, suggesting that she has been in battle. The cross beside her suggests martyrdom.[1]
