#EarthDay: Guaje and Lacquer of Temalacatzingo, Guerrero

04/22/2017

Temalacatzingo: a Nahuatl community engraved in the highlands of the State of Guerrero, is the most important lacquer producer in Mexico, due to the number of artisans dedicated to this activity as well as the diversification of their craft.

From small tiger masks to full ensembles to furnish spaces and rooms, as well as jicaras, guajes, little boxes, chests, trays and furniture are hand painted all year long as a result of an ancient local activity.
