An example of a death mask…

  … from the National Museum of Anthropology in Mexico City. Or the Museo Nacional de Antropologia, for those of you typing in Spanish… One of the truly great museums of the world. You can read a bit about it here… It’s astonishing how many artifacts they have there, and how committed to preserving it all Mexico is… all from a period that would have faded into obscurity long ago but for their efforts. I love this museum, and go there every time I’m in MC… I cannot recommend it highly enough.. Especially to those of you with curious minds…           Advertisements
