Organic Mural Tepoztlan Mexico

Rice and beans are not just staples of cuisine in Tepoztlan, Mexico. In the center of town is a 16th century Dominican monastery and church, the Ex-Convento Dominico de la Natividad.

The gated entrance to the courtyard is adorned with a large organic mosaic made with an assortment of rice, beans and seeds.It depicts a variety of religious figures and historical scenes.

I can’t imagine how many hours it took to create the artwork. It is updated annually.

Tepoztlan is about an hour’s drive from Mexico City and a popular weekend getaway for the city’s residents.
