Arbol de la Vida, Tree of Life

    For more than 100 years Metepec, in the State of Mexico, has been known for its unique ceramic creations, mainly the Arbol de la Vida, tree of life, a clay sculpture covered with flowers, leaves and biblical figures. Trees of life used to have as a central theme the Garden of Eden. Nowadays many other stories are recounted through this splendid clay sculptures….Mexico’s history, the Day of the Dead, The Nativity, Noah’s Ark... some are even autobiographical, telling the potter’s or the customer’s own story

Generally the arboles should be "read"  from bottom to top. In this case, on the lower level of the tree we can see the Creation, Pre-historic American Man, and the Aztecs.
