Story

<p>The Offering exemplifies Mexican modernism with its allegorical allusion to life's journey. It displays a punt boat in a canal filled with zempasúchitl flowers (a marigold that is traditionally associated with death).<br /><br> Each character represents a different stage of life, but they are all following the same end destination and respecting their course. <br /> <br> The main characters are a baby, a youthful man, and an elderly man offering the flowers for the dead. This is a reference to ofrenda, a tradition deeply connected to Mexico's Dia de los Muertos, a celebration of ancestry that is said to connect the living to the dead. <br> <br> Herrán's work gives credence to the "spiritual beauty of the native people of Mexico." </p>
