Pour ceux qui auraient raté l'exposition Teotihuacan : City of Water, City of Fire au De Young de San Francisco, il y a une session de rattrapage au LACMA de Los Angeles sous le titre City and Cosmos : the Arts of Teotihuacan. C'est la même exposition, avec un titre différent !

View of the facade of the Feathered Serpent Pyramid, assembled as a mosaic of large and small sculptures. The head of the Feathered Serpent juts out from the tablero. Its body wraps around the building and carries a headdress thought to represent a primordial crocodile, or the so-called War Serpent. The shells surrounding the Feathered Serpent emphasize that the building represents a watery location, like a mountain rising from the sea. Photograph by Jorge Pérez de Lara Elías, © INAH

View of an area immediately east of the Feathered Serpent Pyramid, looking south. The fragments seen here tumbled down from the eastern facade of the building; some may have been deliberately thrown down in an attempt to desacralize the pyramid. Photograph by Jorge Pérez de Lara Elías, © INAH
