Book Description:
Desde hace varios siglos se mantiene en Mexico la costumbre de retratar a los ninos que acaban de morir como parte del ritual mas amplio que tiene entre sus propositos convertir la tristeza en alegria y festejar la entrada de un alma pura a una nueva vida. La muerte nina es una expresion en la que los ninos muertos son considerados angelitos, y como tales son festejados, no llorados. Estas paginas nos guian en el descubrimiento y analisis de este estremecedor arte ritual. ENGLISH: The ritual of making portraits of children after death has existed in Mexico for several centuries, as part of a larger ritual practice whose aim is to convert sorrow into joy and celebrate a pure souls transition into a new life. In these portraits, the dead children are considered to be angels and as such, they are not mourned but honored. This issue offers an analysis of this poignant ritual art form.
