In his mural at the Ministry of Public Education in Mexico City, he pays homage to "Day of the Dead, " a cherished tradition celebrating life and honoring departed loved ones. This mesmerizing artwork beautifully showcases this deeply rooted Mexican cultural event. Rivera's passion for showcasing pre-Columbian life shines through another awe-inspiring mural depicting Zapotec Civilization. Created in 1925, this masterpiece transports us back to ancient times, offering a glimpse into Mexico's rich historical heritage. The Aztec calendar, an iconic symbol representing Mesoamerican civilization, also finds its place within Rivera's murals. Its intricate design serves as a reminder of Mexico's indigenous roots and their profound influence on contemporary culture. Beyond Rivera's artworks lies a treasure trove waiting to be discovered. Take a journey through time with Alonso de Santa Cruz's map from 1560, which vividly depicts Tenochtitlan (now Mexico City) during Spanish conquest – an invaluable glimpse into history.
