Amate, paper made from tree bark, has been produced by Mexico’s indigenous peoples since at least the eleventh century. Used in religious ceremonies and for important manuscripts, it holds deep cultural significance. The Nahua people of Central Mexico developed another trademark craft: finely painted pottery detailing scenes of village life. In the 1960s the two traditions met, when Nahua artists began painting their intricate designs on amate purchased from the Otomí. The result are these vibrant and detailed depictions.
