More photos from the amazing Museo de Antropologia de Xalapa, Mexico.

According to the Museum, this is Mictlantecuhtli, a diety of the dead.


Personaje con anteojeras - This reminds me of one of the characters from the Mad Max movies.


The origins of the bowtie?





Talk about a monkey on your back!

Actually, this terracotta sculpture from El Zapotal is of a man with a Jaguar.


This reminded me of Alfred E. Newman from MAD Magazine.





This relief is from San José, near Tuxpan, Veracruz. He represents the image of Tláloc, God of Rain. He is carrying the very scarce material, paper.




This large stone carving is from between 1400-1521 CE.

On the left side is Tlaloc, the Rain God. He has a jade necklace & is also carrying paper. To the right is the Goddess Chalciutlicue or Tlazolteotl who has a 'baston-serpiente.' This carving is believed to represent the forces involved in growing corn.

That is all from the Xalapa Museum.



Pictures from the town of Xalapa (also spelled Jalapa)


Several picture of the large church in Xalapa, with decorations for Dia de los Muertos.










Photos of the volcanoes Popocatepetl and Iztaccihuatl ("Popo" and "Izta") from near Puebla. Puebla is east of the volcanoes.

More pictures of "Popo" and "Izta" from the village of Amecameca. Amecameca is west of the volcanoes and is at 7,500 feet. It lies in Popo's "danger zone." Popo had a minor eruption just a few weeks after my visit.

Popo is in the clouds in the middle of the picture.



This picture shows the very top of Popo from Amecameca. It is the most I saw of it during my stay here.



Details of the western slopes of Izta.
