The Sleeping Mexican Wakes Up 

Sleeping Mexican icons collected by Jill Janis. She estimates the collection has more than 2,000 pieces, neatly boxed in a shed in her backyard and separated by category. "I'm aware I'm not a Mexican, and I don't know what the hell I'm talking about, but it's a choice," she says. "I choose not to interpret (the icon) in the negative way, and I'll pick the happier way."
