The Naked Woman
With her right hand aloft like the Statue of Liberty, the 55-foot sculpture called La Mona towers above a run-down neighborhood near Tijuana’s International Airport. Artist Armando Muñoz Garcia has been living inside the cramped five-story structure since 1991. La Mona was originally designed to mark Tijuana’s 1989 centennial anniversary, but city officials rejected the proposal. Muñoz Garcia built it anyway, completing the structure two years after schedule.
