Carlos Mérida: Estampas Del Popol-Vuh

SWC Exhibition

December 27, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

In the second exhibition at Hecho a Mano featuring Mérida’s work, Estampas del Polpol-Vuh tells the story of the creation of the world, the subsequent victory of the heroic twins Hunahpu and Xbalanque over an evil demon, and the birth of mankind. The Popol Vuh is undoubtedly one of the most extraordinary works among the early books of America. With its theory of the creation of the universe and its mythological history of the Maya K’iche’ lineage, the Maya text is of particular importance given the scarcity of early accounts dealing with Mesoamerican mythologies due to the purging of documents after the Spanish conquest.

Also on view is a selection of works from the portfolio Trajes Regionales Mexicanos (Regional Mexican dress).
