Mexico 2016

Crafts

Mexico rivals India for the quantity and variety of crafts. What was interesting was that they weren’t simply being made for tourists. They were actively being used for the Dead of the Dead commemorations, new designs were being supported and the best collected in the popular art museums.

The best examples of living craft were in the markets where the butchers and greengrocers would fill in their downtime by making piñatas and huge Christmas decorations from papier mache on an almost industrial scale.
