Artisan woodwork in Mexico City's historic center
In a small alley in Mexico City's historic center is the Contemporary Mexico Cultural Center, which showcases during the summer months works by six artisans specialized in woodwork. The artisans; Naha Salazar, Raymundo Frausto Guiza, Fabián García Ramos, Félix Mendoza, Ivan Fierro Aguilar and Fernando Martínez Gonzaga; use woods such as red cedar, mahogany and rosewood to create impressive sculptures. This year, they created an exhibition called Ahtzalán, a Mayan word meaning 'he who works wood', made from scrap wood found in the street.
