Mexico City -Temple Mayor's Early Steampunk

The Museo de Templo Mayor, improbably, or not so improbably, sits right on the edge of  Mexico City's main plaza. Nothing like conquerers to expunge and willfully forget the indigenous culture. This piece from the Museo of the  Temple Mayor seems to have forseen such a possibilty and, speaks daggers about the new guys in town.  And it also is the bona fide first instance of steam punk ever .
