LeyreValiente y Regina Dejiménez

American Museum of Madrid

From February 16 to March 19

This activity is within the initiative Madrid Es Moda of ACME ( Spanish Fashion Designers Association )

Xibalba, the Maya underworld, kingdom of the gods of disease and death: the Ajawab or Lords of Xibalba. It does not represent hell since death and disease were seen as part of existence, not as punishment. Life was understood in complementary pairs; day and night, life and death.
