The Aztec Pantheon and the Art of Empire explores the parallels between two great empires, the Aztec and the Roman. Celebrating the 2010 bicentennial of the Mexican independence, the exhibition promotes a dialogue between both the New and Old worlds that shaped the contemporary contours of the country.
The exhibition includes masterpieces of Aztec sculpture from the collections of the National Museum of Anthropology and the Templo Mayor Museum in Mexico City, as well as the Florentine Codex(pictured), one of most valuable chronicles of Aztec history and culture, which returns to the Americas for the first time in more than four centuries.
