Description

“Secrets of the Underworld” is a unique virtual tour that will take you on a journey through the bloody, magical, and culturally shocking social and ritual practices of Mesoamerica. During this tour, you will discover the complexity of pre-Hispanic societies and how these practices were part of their worldview. Many of these civilizations, such as the Zapotec, Maya, Toltec, and Aztec, believed that human sacrifice and other blood rites were necessary to maintain balance and harmony in the world.

On the tour, you will have the opportunity to know deeply about practices such as scarification, human sacrifice, deformation cradles, dental insertions, body deformations, ritual substance use, social punishments, funeral rites and warfare practices. In addition, you will have a detailed vision of how these practices are related to religion, politics and the economy of the time, as well as the philosophy of the duality of life and death.

We will visit some ancient temples and sacred sites of these civilizations, where these ceremonies commonly took place, we will also describe pieces rescued with archaeological work and currently exhibited in museums to have a reference and key examples of these ways of understanding the world.

By immersing yourself in the secrets of the underworld you will discover the true nature of pre-Hispanic societies. Reserve your place on this unique virtual tour and learn more about the ritual practices that marked Mesoamerica.
