Diego Rivera's most famous mural, "Sueño de una Tarde Dominical en la Alameda" (Dream of a Sunday Afternoon in the Alameda) dates from 1947 and measures 15 by four meters. It was originally a fresco on the walls of the Hotel del Prado, damaged after the earthquake of 1985, it was moved here. The mural portrays various historical figures, including Viceroys, Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz, Maximiliano of Hapsburg, Benito Juárez, José Guadalupe Posada, Porfirio Díaz and José Martí. The artist includes himself as a child holding the hand of Posada's "Catrina" (a satirical skeletal society woman from pre-Revolutionary Mexico) standing in front of his beloved Frida Kahlo.
