Welcome to the National Museum of Mexican Art’s new website!
This exhibition is the first exhibition to reveal to the American public the art and culture of the present-day Maya of Chiapas, Mexico. Included are 60 examples of Maya textile art from the mid-nineteenth century to 1987, and 30 contemporary photographs of the Maya people today. Woven into Maya textiles – and Maya life – is their ancient vision of the universe, preserved for more than a thousand years.
Textiles from the Collection of Sna Jolobil, The Weavers’ Society of Chiapas, Mexico. Photographs by Jeffrey Jay Foxx.
