In the Disney Pixar animated film Coco, Miguel journeys to the Land of the Dead accompanied by the street dog Dante, a type of Mexican hairless dog known as a Xoloitzcuintle. Visit the Art of the Americas galleries before the film to see ancient West Mexican ceramic versions of these dogs that were placed in tombs to guide dead souls to the underworld.
