PROA Foundation (1929 Pedro de Mendoza Avenue, La Boca) presents the exhibition “Gods, rites and masses of the pre-Hispanic Mexico”. Until January the 8th, 2012, you have the chance to enjoy true archeological relics in Buenos Aires. The exhibition is a trip to one of the most ancient cultures of our continent through its objects and history. Hostel Colonial tells you all you need to know about the event.
There are almost 150 archeological pieces from the different cultures that inhabited the Mexican Gulf before the Spanish arrived. The gods and their different representations, the figures and the masses and funerals, is what you’ll find here. A life with an 18 months calendar, cultures celebration fertility after every rain: and new old world for you to discover.
An economy based on barter where money doesn’t exists. Agriculture, hunting, recollection and fishing as ways of surviving. A culture you will discover through its representations. Cured by Mexican David Morales Gómez, professor of the Veracruz University, the exhibition is one of the most relevant in its specificity: “A great selection of pieces which show the wide variety of ideas, social structures and complexity of an ideology”, he said.
You can visit “Gods, rites and masses…”, Tuesdays to Sundays, from 11AM to 7PM, near Caminito in La Boca neighborhood.
