According to Náhuatl language translator and interpreter Miguel León Portilla, Tlamatini comes from the Náhuatl “Wise man” who was the person who used to interpret codex and who helped understand the roll of every human in the word. They were like mirrors where people would look at and discover their purpose in the world and their interaction with nature and the gods.  “After 20 years working for the reproduction department at the National Institute of Archeology and History, where I arrived as an apprentice and ended as head of the department, I decided to start my own business with the help and support of my wife” founder Pablo Alberto Perez said. Tlamatini is based in Queretaro, where 40 years of experience in the reproduction of Mexican pre-Columbian pieces has allowed the company to sell pieces to the most prestigious museums in Mexico and to participate in several conferences in Latin America. Tlamatini allows us to enjoy and to share cultural treasures, so they can be appreciated by people from all over the world. The appreciation comes from the details in each and every piece. Tlamatini’s workshop of archaeological replicas strives to promote archaeological treasures to the public interested in pre-Hispanic cultures that were developed in Mesoamerica, which includes the western side of Mexico (Jalisco, Nayarit, and Colima), and Central America.
