Hot Slut Of The Day!

The gorgeous Mexican painting by Jesús Helguera of an Aztec warrior carrying a dead princess. 

Today’s the day we all commemorate the Battle of Puebla by filling our insides with tequila, carne asada nachos and churros we make ourselves using Pillsbury Crescent Roll dough, so in honor of that, the HSOTD is the stunning and iconic Mexican painting of a hot warrior carrying a dead princess. If you’re Mexican, then this painting is probably like a family member to you, because the velvet version of it hung in your living room as a kid and at least one of your cousins has it tattooed on their arm. It’s a Mexican icon! My family’s not even Mexican and my aunt has the calendar of this hanging in her kitchen. Yes, the calendar is from 2004. No, she’s not taking it down and no, she never will.

To some of you, this painting might look like a typical day at Coachella. You know, a dude in a headdress carrying his girlfriend back to their tent after she drank too much. But the painting titled La Leyenda de los Volcanes tells the story of the romance between the princess Iztaccíhuatl and the warrior Popocatépetl. There’s several different versions of the story, but one of the versions is that the Aztec warrior Popocatépetl and the Aztec princess Iztaccíhuatl were really in love and shit and they were supposed to get married when he came back from battle. But one of Popo’s bitchy, jealous rivals fucked with their love by telling Izta’s father the emperor that Popo died during battle. When Izta was told the fraudulent news, she died of sadness. Popo came back to town ALIVE and after he was told that sadness killed Izta, he carried her body out of town, laid her at the foot of some mountains and mourned her until he died of sadness himself. The Gods were so touched by their love that they turned them both into volcanos. It’s basically the superior Romeo & Juliet, because did Romeo & Juliet become volcanos? Nope.

And now Popo and Izta’s love lives forever on this elegante painting that’s on blankets, cigar boxes, posters, t-shirts, the side of vans, etc… etc…

Happy Cinco De Mayo, everyone!
