Synopsis: This beautifully illustrated book celebrates the restoration of two of Diego Riveras most important yet little known works his mural, Water, Source of Life on Earth, and the Tlaloc Fountain, dedicated to the Aztec god of rain, water and fertility and fed by a stream dating to pre Hispanic times. Located in Mexico Citys Chapultepec Park, the mural and fountain were built during 1950 overhaul of Mexico Citys waterworks. Over the years, they fell into disrepair and the water source was cut off. In 2010, after a comprehensive restoration, these two lively works were re opened to the public. The texts and images featured here create
a virtual x ray of the biggest urban park in Mexico and its role in providing potable water to the mega metropolis. Includes analysis from urban planning, architectural, artistic and social perspectives. Informative texts by Cynthia Aguirre, Ariel Guzik, Jorge Legorreta, Daniel Vargas, Eduardo Vázquez and others.
