My canvas, MELANCHOLY, is supposed to represent a sad Aztec love story. I drew the warrior Popocateptl on the ride side with a blank shaking face with his Aztec warrior uniform. Popocateptl was a peasant in the Aztec times. The pyramid is supposed to symbolize the sacrifice he made to try to be with tis one true love Iztacchihualt. She was the princess of the Aztec empire near Xochimilco. On the bottom left corner, there is an Aztec symbol of death so others that haven't heard this heartwarming story to discover it though my painting. Although I did not draw many objects in the canvas, it is to symbolize how empty he felt when he discovered his love's death meanwhile he was in the war.
