The  European influence on Mexican women dressing in expensive clothes, jewelry and make up was captured  by Posada in a skull women “calaca garbancera” wearing only a fancy decorated hat and denying her Indian origins. Diego Rivera in 1948 brings Posada's concept and painted this female figure in his famous mural " Un Domingo en la Alameda " .
