These five cases feature folk art made by a group of master artisans representing urban, rural, and indigenous communities across Mexico. The items on view -- whether made for everyday use, ritual purposes, or "art for art's sake" -- reveal the artists' superb technical mastery of the materials and aesthetic sensibility. Objects include pottery, clay figures, baskets, silver, and decorated boxes.
