GALLERY II
THE INDIANS OF MEXICO

CUANDO LA DANZA SE VUELVE RITO: LOS INDIOS DE MEXICO
QUAND LA DANSE DEVIENT RITE: LES INDIGENES DE MEXIQUE
WHEN DANCE BECOMES RITE: THE INDIANS OF MEXICO

After the encounter of Antoine Tzapoff and Maria Felix in Paris, Antoine Tzapoff was absorbed by the rich culture  of the Indian tribes of Mexico .  As a gift to Mdme. Felix and the people of Mexico, Antoine Tzapoff worked on his future exhibition called "Cuando La Danza Se Vuelve Rito: Los Indios de Mexico" ("When Dance Becomes Rite: The Indians of Mexico")

This exhibition presents to the expectator the different tribes that once developed a culture different to any other one in the entire world.  Tribes that in the XIX Century learned to mix their traditions with the new culture brought to them from Europe.
