Additional Pictures For National Museum Of Anthropology (Mexico City)

I have added a few pictures from the "Sala Toltecas" with Cacaxtla, Xochicalco and Tula.

Cacaxtla conserves the oldest mural painting featuring a human figure and symbols from other cultures (Teotihuacan, Maya, Mixtec and Totonaca).

The bird man is associated with Quetzalcoatl, the generous deity who taught people the arts and agriculture.

Tula: Home of the Atlantes. After the fall of Teotihuacan, the home of the Atlantes, also known as  the sacred city of Quetzalcoatl, was the most important settlement in Central Mexico. 

The "Breastplate of Tula" recovered in room 2 of the palace Quemado, in the early nineties of the twentieth century.
