Mexico is proud to offer visitors over 3,000 years of history, civilisation and culture. It’s bursting with vibrant colour, with traditions rooted in ancient civilisations. Few countries can boast such a vast cultural and historical heritage. It has a dynamic economy, world-famous cuisine and the largest Spanish-speaking population on the planet.
Our lantern celebrates one of Mexico’s most iconic artists, Frida Kahlo. Known for her brightly coloured self-portraits depicting pain and passion, and having spent many years bedridden after an accident, she said: " Feet, what do I want them for, if I have wings to fly?"
