This French catalogue was published for the exhibition Teotihuacan City of Gods presented at the Quai Branly Museum in Paris until 24 January, 2010.
The exhibition brings together some 450 exceptional items of Teotihuacan culture, a large city of Ancient Mexico where recent excavations have led to a better understanding of the site.
The objects are presented in successive themes enabling visitors to discover this ancient city, and to understand the way it functioned and the role and influence it held in the Mesoamerican world.
This unique exhibition presents items most of which have never before been displayed in Europe. Some were unknown in Mexico until they were on show in Monterrey between September 2008 and January 2009. 95% of the objects come from Mexican collections and 5% from European collections (collections from German ethnographic museums and from the musée du quai Branly in Paris).
