Mazatlán International Center


Although we could not get close to the building, I was able to photograph from afar the mosaic on the side of the new convention center in Mazatlán,  It depicts part of the history of the city. Look to the left to see a deer which is a Nahuatl word meaning "place of deer." The other symbols refer to the founding of México and the aquatic element of this seaport city.

We visited your mural back in 2014.
We had here until Saturday when we head to Guadalajara.

I'm stunned these complex images are executed in mosaic. Fabulous. Bet you're soaking in the warmth and just smiling at the sun. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.
