Quick Overview

Amate paper comes from very thin layers of the inside of the amate tree. This type of paper has been used for thousands of years. The ancient Aztecs used amate paper to record vibrantly colored calendars and sceneries depicting their history.

Authors of amate paintings are not formally schooled in art but instead strive to paint from their "minds" eye. Amate paintings originate from the Alto Rio Balsas villages of the State of Guerrero.
