“It’s my family, the most important thing in my life. I wanted to portray the faces of my daughter in this dream I’ve always had, my lowrider. There is also the Mexican Revolution monument, the Angel of Independence, and on the other side, an homage to my late father.”

Independence Day marks an uprising in 1810 that led to the break from Spain

Celebrations are called 'El Grito' or 'the cry' after the speech that sparked the revolt

The president traditionally re-enacts the call to arms from the balcony of the National Palace
