English: Monumento al Mestizaje" by Julián Martínez y M. Maldonado (1982).

Represents Hernan Cortes, La Malinche (Malintzin, or Malinalli, or Doña Marina) and their son, Martín Cortes, comisioned by President Lopez Portillo.

The Mexican actor of Spanish origin Germán Robles posed as Hernán Cortés.

Originally it was put in the Centre of Coyoacan, near the place where was Cortes country house, but it was moved to a little known park due to public protests. Currently the figure of the children has disappeared, probably vandalism.
