Monumentos de México

mdf monument model

 

I bought a model of the Mexican Revolution monument in its souvenir shop. Using the same material and the same scale, I did a model of the original plan for the monument. It comprised a bigger construction that would be a big legislative palace. Both models fit together and show the stages of these buildings. They represent different ideologies about Mexico and this piece deconstruct this ideological embodiments.
