in detail

Between 1929 and 1935, Rivera gave life, in the walls of Palacio Nacional’s central yard, to a series of works relative to the history of Mexico, from prehispanic times until the first two decades of XX century.

This mural represents, he most important trading center of the region during the first years of XVI century, with streets specializing in products from the area and other regions of Mesoamerica such as pigments, jewels and even exotic seasonings.

The figure of tlatoani walking through the market may be seen in the forefront; while in the background there is, with great perspective, the Mexica city of Tlatelolco.
