Barro Total exhibition

Another one of those things that we simply bumped into. I love that! This time, we were walking around the Zócalo (Mexico City's main square), trying to decide what to do, and we caught a glimpse of a sculpture inside this nicely renovated old building. 

It happened to be the Gallery of the Ministry of Finance (Secretaría de Hacienda y Crédito Público), a most unassuming place, but with a very nice exhibition on pieces made from clay and ceramics by Mexican artists.

These are the ones that struck me as particularly moving or unique...
