Description
 
The Mexican population - in spite of its boundless diversity - finds unity in their pride of identity and cultural heritage - of which Indian ancestry plays a large part. The influence of the past is strongly felt in Mexican art, almost all of which bears some mark of its indigenous predecessors.

This program traces the foundations of Mexican art from it's roots in such Indian masterworks as the colossal stone heads of the Olmecs, the stunning jewelry of the Mixtecs, and the famous ritual and sacred objects of the Mayan and Aztec civilizations, through the influence of the Conquest and Christianity on indigenous art forms. This is an indispensable guide to the understanding of Mexican art - both of the past and present.
