Comments by Orozco’s son Clemente Orozco:
'Visitors from abroad or from the hinterland: humor is evident in the accentuated treatment of the stereotype that show the naivete and the cultural ethnocentrism of each group. t is amazing to see the facile line of the rich tourists and the motley treatment of the devoted and ragged Indians".
