"Ixtz'unun: Making Stories from Maya History" Opening Reception

View Full Event Description

Join the Consulate of Mexico in New Orleans and the Middle American Research Institute for an opening reception for the exhibit Ixtz’unun: Making Stories from Maya History by Mélanie Forné held in conjunction with the 14th Annual Tulane Maya Symposium.

Ixtz’unun (“little hummingbird”) is a little Maya girl, and like so many other little girls, she, with her sisters, makes childish jokes and sometimes puts herself into trouble. The only difference with her is that – she lives in A.D. 760!

The comic Ixtz’unun, published in Guatemala by Prensa Libre, tells the stories of this little girl and her friends and family and presents the daily life of the Ancient Maya. The exhibition Ixtz’unun, Making Stories from Maya History, presents original pieces and preparatory drawings from this comic series.

Preview images from the comics here.

This event is free and open to the public.
