Una Sampere painted a portrait of Maria Félix, actress and National symbol of the Mexican Golden Age of Film Industry. More than a time and a current, Maria portrays the Mexican desire and attitude: smiling but detached, serious but inviting. Remembered for her beauty and her temper, Maria to Una is not only the symbol of Woman but also that of Man, the active pursuer, the sensitive dreamer and accomplisher.

Maria is wearing a big sombrero charro with a small prehispanic pattern and a huipil: an embroidered blouse with the colours of the National Flag. She has two golden earrings that make allusion to the golden eagle that eats the serpent and stands on top of a prickly pear.

Una is am happy to do what she really likes, she feels very grateful. She had wanted to paint Maria, and after many thoughts she realized it was best for me to have the challenge of a very beautiful woman for this very special opportunity.
