Typically seen as a feminine practice among Mexicans and Mexican Americans, altar making acts as a counterpoint to male-dominated ceremonies within Catholicism. In her print, Dolores Guerrero-Cruz adorns a windowsill overlooking a Mexican town. In a show of remembrance, she depicts framed photographs with a vase of calla lilies, favoring flowers featured prominently in Mexican art. Traditionally, these female-constructed, female-centered spaces are found in the home and rarely in the public sphere.
