Tomb Culture” due to their distinctive burial practices.

“Unknown Mexico” is a panorama of Western Mexico and its peoples, from ancient to
modern times, featuring traditional Huichol crafts, ink and wash drawings and
illustrations in acrylic paint, plus 87 color photographs of ancient artifacts and views of
modern Huichol Indians. “Unknown Mexico” is available in both English and Spanish
formats.

The exhibition will be available to the public from (starting date) to (closing date) .
