Pieces from Diego's collection would also appear in many of her paintings or serve as models or inspiration for a painting. Her 1932 painting "My Birth" in which she paints " how I imagined I was born ", a statue of the Aztec Goddess Tlazolteolt may have been the model. In "My Nurse and I" from 1937, the "Nurse" is wearing a Teotihuacán mask and the "Madonna and Child" pose may have been modeled after a pre-Columbian statue. Pre-Columbian artifacts can be found in other paintings as well: "The Four Inhabitants of Mexico City" (1938), "Girl with Death Mask" (1938), and "Self-Portrait with Small Monkey" (1945).
It was the month of July. It was very hot during the day time. Hot winds were blowing all the time. People were in a bad way. They were tired of heat and dust. Everyone was praying for the rains to come. Suddenly clouds begin to appear in the sky, and once morning people woke up to a totally overcast sky. There was a sudden drop in the temperature. Soon it was drizzling. It began to rain steadily soon after. Within a few minutes it begun to rain heavily. There was beautiful smell of the earth in the air. People were mad with joy. They were dancing in the rain. They were all getting wet. At times there was lightening and thunder.
