Good art indeed, but one dimensional and misses the point of the myth. The Legend may seem scary,but the woman was not. One consistent aspect (and indeed key featureO of the legend is that La Llorona is so beautiful that she is mistaken by the Holy virgen. While there are dozens of versions of the story, it is meant to be an allegory for the ruined aztec kingdom. The woman in the legend killed her children because they were the product of rape by a conquering spaniard. Indeed la Llorana is an eligy to the Aztec godess Tonantzin. My mother is a direct descendant of the Aztecs. Go check Lila Downs song from the movie Frida or Eugenia de Leon. Here are three key verses: I don't know what is wrong my Llorona with the flowers of hte cemeter, because when the wind moves them they appear to cry (elegy to Aztec Godess/kingdom). Today I saw you coming out of the church my Llorona and so beautiful you looked my Llorona that I confused you with the Holy Virgen (catholic Vigen).
It is indeed a good rendition of the scary part, but this leyend is much more than this. Itis an allegory of a culture.

I have learned of this legend many times, and i am a believer in this kind of stuff. I think that this picture really captures the legend. People think that she should look scary, but she is known to walk around in her wedding gown crying, to take form of a wolf, and to take childrens souls. I think it's captured beautifully!
