These ancient practices held a role in both, Mesoamerican funerary traditions and in contemporary folk celebrations in Mexico and Latin America. “Máscaras de México – Vida y Muerte en La Máscara” illustrates a multicultural approach around storytelling via rituals and practices passed down from generation to generation, it creates and supports a magical world of transcendence, an individual and collective spirit that is present in our lives.
