Context: Medellin was brought to the United States at 13 to escape the ravages of the Mexican Civil War. He attended the Art Institute of Chicago before traveling intermittently to Mexico, where he took inspiration from the Maya-Toltec cultures, becoming reacquainted with his own artistic heritage. "El Ahorcado (The Hanged One)" was sculpted at a time when Medellin's work was becoming nationally recognized. Taken from memories of his youth, "El Ahorcado" may symbolize Mexico's effort to free itself of centuries of colonial subjugation and to find its own democratic path, a struggle that Medellin witnessed firsthand.
