This is JosÚ Clemente Orozco's great mural of CortÚs and Malinche (Cortés y La Malinche) as Adam and Eve. Is the figure beneath them Mexico? It is hard to see this mural of 1926 as anything other than a very negative image. Then compare this with his other brutal painting, Hernán Cortés, lower down, from the late 1930's.
The upper image is in the Antiguo Colegio de San Ildefonso, Mexico City (their website here). The lower image of Cortes is from Hospicio Cabañas, Guadalajara, which is no longer a hospital, but a treasure trove of Orozco murals and a World Heritage Site (website here).
