An exhibition made up by 73 textile pieces whose objective is to reflect on the artisanal production and the technical innovation from the devotion to the Virgin of Guadalupe.

Crafted by hands of the artisans of the Amuzgo, Chatino, Chinanteco, Huave, Huichol, Maya, Tzotzil, Mazahua, and Mazateco indigenous peoples, among others, this exhibition encompasses from gala clothes to everyday garments, female and male, where the public can admire the mastery of the traditional embroidery, the color of the materials, and the mastery of the authors to recreate the image of the Virgin of Guadalupe, according to the techniques, forms, and decorative details of the textile tradition of its region of origin or community.

The collection not only stands as a testimony of the Mexican artisanal skill, but also of their faith on the Virgin of Guadalupe, whose main representation is the virgin revealed among roses on an indigenous piece of clothing.
