In 1932, archeologists opened an untouched tomb approximately 200 miles south of Mexico City. The discovery of the beautiful and magnificent silver jewelry of the Zapotec culture rewrote the history of Mexico and Central America. Ancient cities. Lost tombs. Royal treasures. From the real archeological history of Mexico, we watch as a 69 year old woman in Oaxaca re-creates in exact details one piece of silver jewelry.
Lost to modern history, the artistic skill of the Mixtec culture comes to life before your eyes.
With patience and very basic tools, Senora Dominguez allows us to watch over her shoulder as she
uses the lost wax technique to make this tiny treasure. She works smoothly and professionally, comfortable and confident from over 50 years of experience. Whether an artist, a jewelry maker, an aspiring archeologist or just someone who loves history and craft, the viewer will get lost in the magic of creation.
