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.

Mexican vintage, or welcome to my world

Ok, this is French. It's mid century, covered in bits.

British plate, has a stamp of Copeland & Garret, which was produced from 1833 to 1847.

I'm not 100% sure, but I think this mask is from Chiapas, although it as couple of strange marks. It's a white man with a jaguar skalp and two snakes on each side of the face.

Beauty! Pay special attention to the big blue portador de agua.

Vintage canes

Other vintage masks. Pay attention to the mask of a man with penis nose. Probably fertility mask. Some from Michoacan, some from Oaxaca, some from Chiapas.
