Subject matter
Designed at the close of the Mexican Revolution, as the modern state of Mexico was established (1929). This design is reminiscent of his "Mexico in Revolution" drawings from earlier in the decade. Though there are soldiers represented here, the effects of war is depicted through the lives of the women who are left behind. The two figures on the left are left distressed, while the central figure, very literally, carries a heavy burden. 

Physical Description
