The Wall Fallen from the Sky in Guadalajara

Which God was it that decided, in the year 2010, to send an unknown mural by Diego Rivera from the sky to the city of Guadalajara ? It warned the Little Girl-Giant that the time had come to find her uncle. The next day, a package was placed in a square : it was a block of ice containing Xolo, the god-dog with obsidian teeth. A sleeping dog, sent as a gift to the Little Girl-Giant.

A few days after the ice had melted, Xolo, who was then bounding around the streets, flared the location of the sarcophagus. Once the great Giant had been rescued, the three companions vanished, taking some Mexican earth with them. Is this a tale whispered by the mountains ? Or simply one of the stories Frida Kahlo deposited into the ears of Diego Rivera to lull him to sleep ? Or a soft and violent dream Orozco saw in transparence on the walls of the city ? Whatever it may be, on stormy nights, you can hear the ringing laughter of Pancho Villa in the Mexican sky.
