Tlaquepaque Altars

There was a big exhibition inside the Refugio which used to be a hospital and now is a museum and cultural events building in Tlaquepaque.  We skipped the exhibition but were able to go in the back door to see their altars.  They were lovely and creative.

Someone had also set up a representation of a shaft tomb (tumba de tiro).  He didn't convince me that today's altars stem from ancient shaft tombs, but maybe it's true.  I loved how they'd set it up, especially with native plants, and he even took our camera so he could get us some better shots from within the tomb.
