RSD Photo's Mexican Life

By rsdphotography

Quetzalcóatl Fotográfico

We spent the day at the National Museum of Anthropology a quick two subway train ride away from our hotel. A fabulous museum, so full of artifacts that we barely got through half the exhibits in the four plus hours we spent there. Lots of pre-Hispanic statues and carvings, including the famous sun stone (mistakenly called the Aztec calendar) unearthed at the Zocalo in 1790. I was most taken, however, with the display of 324 photos in an installation called Quetzalcóatl Fotográfico. Taken all over Mexico, these spectacular photos are arranged in the pattern of a serpent, Quetzalcóatl, and arranged according to color, like a serpent's feathers. There is one panel that is a mirror so you (or your wife in this case) can become part of the photo display. Very inspiring photos, very inspiring day.
