Description
This charming vignette of daily life, shows a woman grinding cornmeal in a stone mortar. Except for her lack of costume, such a scene would not be unusual in the Mexican countryside today. Buried to accompany the deceased, this delightful figure guaranteed that the staple of cornmeal would be available through eternity. Lost in the familiar ritual of her task, she has not noticed the passage of time. We should be careful lest we startle her. - (PF.1436)
