Mexican craftsmen: popularizing their country’s cultureadmin
In Mexico, there is a huge diversity of craftworks as a reflection of a vast ancient culture, a mixture of Spanish and Arab culture during colonization times. Through thousands of pottery, bone, glass designs, among others, the Mexican art veils craftsman’s creativity, who contribute with their identity and culture for the world.
One of the most important aspects of Mexican art is that each region has created its craftworks with its peculiar elements, such as the type of soil they use, available materials, and costumes; not only that but also, since prehispanic cultures were different among themselves, they had their cosmogony: beliefs, gods, rituals, treasure, ceremonies, and ornaments that nowadays we can recognize through craftworks.
