“Maria y Su Sagrada Familia” 

Is a lighthearted take on the image of the Holy Family. I depicted Mary as a proud Latina chola wearing a t-shirt with an image of Linda Carter Wonder Women. Like the Virgin Mary, Wonder Women is a symbol of beauty, empowerment, equality, justice and strength for many women and Linda Carter because of her own latin roots. Graffitied on the wall is the image of San José and the Infant Jesus sporting their own cholo style. The infant Jesus holding a can of his Mothers Aqua Net hair spray that miraculously holds her hair up high.
