Here's the official invitation:
Lords of Xibalba
Pre-Columbian Mysticism in Contemporary Fashion
LeyreValiente y Regina Dejiménez
American Museum of Madrid
From February 16 to March 19
This activity is within the initiative Madrid Es Moda of ACME ( Spanish Fashion Designers Association )
Xibalba, the Maya underworld, kingdom of the gods of disease and death: the Ajawab or Lords of Xibalba. It does not represent hell since death and disease were seen as part of existence, not as punishment. Life was understood in complementary pairs; day and night, life and death.
