This exhibition by Cinzia Fontanelli looks at the symbolism used by the pre-Columbian Aztec and Maya civilisations through faces, masks, sculptures, skulls, pyramids, snakes, and archaeological sites.

Cinzia is a London-based Italian artist of Florentine origin and her work relates to landscape, travel and current events. She is inspired by pre-Columbian civilisations, in particular their representations in academia, funeral art and the symbolism of materials.

With this exhibition Cinzia combines her pre-Columbian academic research with her experiences in Mexico in 2006. She was inspired by the Mayan archaeological site at Chichen Itza in Yucatàn and the Tulum site.

This is her second exhibition on the theme of the pre-Columbian civilisations. The first was in 2018, at the Church of Suffrage in the province of Ravenna, Italy.
