      EL TZOMPANTLI

      Tzompantli was the name given to the altars of the Mesoamerican cultures. In these altars, a number of human cranes were arranged as decoration for the deceased. When the Spaniards arrived to Mexico, a lot of “religious traditions” from the native people were eradicated and transformed. Mexico´s new catholic traditions for the celebration of the dead changed into a technique called “alfeñique”, a process of elaborating human crane shapes from sugar cane, decorating them with different colors and shapes. Artisans who develop these pieces come from Morelos, Guanajuato and Estado de Mexico.
