    Mexico has a vast range of festivals, several commemorating national events but mostly religious or spiritual in inspiration. After the Spanish Conquest of 1521, Roman Catholic teachings fused with the beliefs of native civilizations, and even today the popular arts and crafts draw upon the Church as a rich source of imagery. Fiestas are often lavish and extremely costly. With extensive preparations, they commemorate local saints' days and religious holidays such as Christmas, Carnival and Holy Week.Drawing on her extensive travels in Mexico and the collections she has helped create in the British Museum, ChloŽ Sayer provides a living context to show what makes these festivities so attractive and also uniquely Mexican.
