Native Mexican cultures and their importance

Almost all beautiful things that you can see on my blog are work of craftsmen which belongs, or using their cultural roots, of native Mexican cultures. Native, or prehispanic cultures in Mexico are alive and triving. Virtualy they are inseparable from modern Mexican culture and alive inside of it. So I’m making one series of picture dedicated to native cultures of Mexico. If you want to know more, or have some question contact me on rama_dorada@hotmail.com

The treasures of Mexico – FONART and their collection, part 1

After two weeks of talking to different people of SEDESOL Mexico, I finally got my permission to take photos inside of a FONART store. FONART is an governmental organization which foments craft producers and ethnic art in Mexico. They have stores all over Mexico, but I’m not sure how well they are known abroad. Well, I want to change that, so I’m going to write couple of articles about things they have. The store I took photos today is:

Av. Patriotismo No. 691, Col. Mixcoac C.P. 03910

Tel. 50-93-60-60

E-mail: tda_patriotismo@fonart.gob.mx
