Masters Forever

The Mystery of Zapotec Skulls

It is an extraordinary collection, exhibited for the first time, made up by human skulls with intentional deformity, long bones, giant trumpet seashells, limestone jambs and lintels, and other objects from the Mixtec-Zapotec region of Oaxaca and Puebla, Mexico.

These objects belonged to an ancient community ruled by a group of wise seniors called Masters who carved with obsidian skulls, bones and shells of Masters who have recently died, with particular scenes of their lives.
