Calavera de los Camiones
153. POSADA, José Guadalupe. La calavera de los camiones. ¡Ahi les va la calavera de los meros copetones wue ha triunfado donde quiera, y es la de los camiones.... Mexico: A. Vanegas Arroyo, n.d. Broadside, full sheet, 37.2 x 28 cm, zinc etching printed in black on pale green paper. Lightly browned around the edges, else very fine.
Same image as #147 in Tyler, Posada’s Mexico (p. 237), in which a large skeleton, “Death,” speaks and gestures to skulls on the ground and a smaller skeleton in the Centennial Graveyard. “Here Posada made the trip to the cemetery more convenient by having the tram bring the doomed passengers directly to their graves.” ($300-600)
