La Llorona

Some viz dev based on a mexican folk ghost tale, La Llorona. The original story is meant to be a cautionary tale to warn children not to wander off or misbehave, for La Llorona, or "The Weeping Woman", is in an eternal search for her children whom she has drowned with her own hands out of passion and despair for a man who bore them with her and yet denied her the love she sought from him.

The artwork derives not directly from the folktale, but from a contemporary California ghost story about a widower who learns of the tale and comes to confront the ghost itself.
