Architecture<br />Some of the architectural styles of the nation have a strong influence from those previous epochs.<br />The architectural structure of the Mesoamerican region is more of the pyramid style buildings such as those in Ancient Egypt<br />You will find most of these magnificent structures in Teotihuacán, the Maya cities, the Zapotec center at Monte Albán, and the Classic Vera Cruz.<br />Buildings were designed using the talud-tablero (slope-and-panel) system.<br />
  3. 3. Arts <br />Some of the Mexican arts in Folk art, masks, set of wake(little dolls) pottery, and woodcarving. <br />These arts were all preconceived from the early people of Mexico, in the cities ofTeotihuacán, and Maya cities.<br />
  4. 4. Music <br />The music of Mexico provides a rich tapestry of rhythm, tone, and variety. Its roots are based on a compelling history of disparate influences.<br />During the Superior Paleolithic one<br /> of the main instruments was the <br /> bone flute.<br />The bone flutes made animal noises.<br />These sounds are which the music of<br /> Mexican is now derived from<br />Some of the types of music are:<br />Mariachi <br />Marimba <br />Conjuntojarocho<br />Conjuntohuasteco<br />Banda <br />Conjuntonorteño<br />Conjuntocalentano<br />
  5. 5. Dance <br />In the pre-Hispanic times to the sing and dance were called &quot;IN CUICATL IN XOCHITL&quot; (The sing and the flower), because that was an offering to be in contact with the natural manifestations (deities) the dance was considered a way of concentration in motion. <br />The ritual dance was called Macehualiztli (deserving) and the popular dace was called Netotiliztli.<br />The scudding and the whirling movements represent the fertility.<br />the steps that go al the way to the floor represent the earth and the crops. <br />The spinning on the air represent the <br /> soul, the steps back and forward the fire<br /> and zigzag steps the water.<br />
