Marvel at the photo of the day that shows a part of Mexico

The INAH is in charge of selecting an image every day that portrays the greatness and cultural wealth of the country

Photography is a powerful tool for exploring the world around us. By capturing architectural structures, animals, landscapes, or people, we can appreciate the beauty and aesthetic sense in a moment frozen in time.

Even in the midst of monotony, an image of a corner of Mexico can be entertaining and let us learn something new that we could share in meetings.

The image of the day, provided by the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH), invites us to reflect on human creativity and the beauty found in our country. Without further ado, here is the image of the day.

The enigmatic Monolith of Tlaloc of the National Museum of Anthropology

The impressive sculpture known as the Monolith of Tlaloc is one of the most emblematic treasures of the National Museum of Anthropology in Mexico City. This colossal piece was found near the Mexican town of San Miguel Coatlinchan and in 1964 it was moved from its place of origin to the newly opened National Museum of Anthropology.

The monolith is generally accepted as a representation of the god Tlaloc, the ancient Mexica god of rain and fertility. Although there is no absolute consensus among experts on this interpretation, the sculpture has fascinated archaeologists and scholars for decades since its discovery.

A look at the richness of Mexico through its images

The country is full of diverse landscapes and cultures that enrich it. From pre-Hispanic peoples to the present day, it has a varied heritage throughout the territory, which is the fourteenth largest in the world. Although in Mexico the main language is Spanish, there are 67 indigenous languages ​​that coexist every day.

Deserts, beaches and jungles are some of the diverse ecosystems in Mexico, which together with the cities, make it easy for each photograph of the day to be different from the previous one, without leaving aside its didactic factor.

According to the federal government, there are 189 archaeological sites. Among the most iconic are Teotihuacan, Tajin, Palenque, Tulum and Chichen Itza, the latter considered one of the 7 wonders of the world since 2007 and a world heritage site, declared by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) in the 1980s.

Among other spaces registered as world heritage sites, there are six natural sites, as well as the ancient Mayan city of Calakmul, located in the state of Campeche. Throughout the 31 states there are 2,000 historical monuments, 1,321 museums, 1,976 cultural centers and 111 magical towns.

The images chosen by the INAH include pre-Hispanic pieces, landscapes, murals, ruins, nature, and even nooks and crannies of the different cities that cross from north to south.
