Description

Timeless Space in New Mexico

There is a very powerful kind of peace that is suggested by this photograph. The open sky in the background works nicely to convey an idea of immensity which permeates the cultural achievements of the people who lived in this site hundreds of years ago. There is a very nice theme of getting back to nature and even one's roots. This souvenir from United States just feels timeless and yet indicative of a particular moment in time and even space. The desert seems to hold this work of men as the sun embraces the landscape.

A Feel of Old Cultures

If you are interested in old cultures, you can't miss Pecos National Historical Park as it houses the remains of Pecos Pueblo. This Pueblo dates from 1100 A D when the Pecos people established their first settlement in that site. The village was renovated and rebuilt many times as its inhabitants progressed in their cultural achievements. Their architecture grew more sophisticated establishing the basis to what now is called Pueblos Revival, the region's distinctive architectural style.

The Pueblo people's culture achieved sophistication in other areas such as agriculture and religion. They grew beans and corn in the fields to feed the whole population and to trade with other communities from the North and the South. Their religious world was complex as well and the Pecos people were known for the kivas, a kind of intriguing rite that consolidated their deities as they confronted the religion brought by the European colonizers. One of the most famous confrontations happened in the Seventeenth century when Native Americans from several communities revolting. At the time, some churches were destroyed. All in all, this is a great travel souvenir to take back home.
