Art historian VITA OZOLIŅA will talk about her visit to Latvia’s Honorary Consul in Mexico, Beatrise Trueblood-Āboltiņa
In the 16th century, the Spanish colonised the Aztecs, Mayans and other peoples who inhabited the territory of today’s Mexico. A new nation – the Mexicans, gradually developed over the course of history.
We know of today’s Mexico mainly from film serials, which unfortunately don’t show either Mexico’s ancient cities, or the legacy left by the original inhabitants. This time it will be a story, which Beatrise helped in introducing, about this beautiful, wonderful country with its pyramids and ancient temples, with its mysterious masks and huge butterflies.
