The Tarascas fount
Mexico
The source of the Tarascas was built in 1937, in order to sympathize with the then President of Mexico, Gen. Lazaro Cardenas Del Rio, who had a residence in which we know today as the Institute of Youth and Michoacan, to be placed on the side of his house, became a seductive gift, which did his fascination with Indian culture and women. The source of cement and clay on wire, decorated with snails as a representation of man (in hieroglyphics native) declaring their hand crafted and three women embody a graceful Indian princesses: Atzimba, Erendira and Tzetzangari, managed to win people with its great symbolism. The controversial construction was not welcomed by citizens who objected to the image of naked ladies, however, eventually began to recognize and be proud of such beauty. Currently "The Tarascas" exemplify the feminine uniqueness Purhépecha and despite its many legends are an icon of our city, that every day becomes the main background of many photographs of foreign and domestic visitors, also serving as the company photos of recent graduates, establishing itself as one of the most fortified monuments of wisdom and tradition that make up the rich culture of our beautiful city of Morelia.

More About North America

North America includes Mexico, the United States, Canada, and Gotham City.The region temporarily existed as a Protectorate of His Imperial Majesty Emperor Norton I, with its capital being the city of San Francisco. Sadly, this term of benevolent ebullience lasted a brief two decades and ended c. 1880.The United States is now the dominant country of North America. It arose as a nation only 225 years ago after a successful rebellion against the British government under King George III. From a distance, it appears that the eastern coastlines of North and South America fit exactly into the west coast of Africa. In fact, about 250 million years ago these continents really were all connected in one land mass that we have named Pangaea.With such a foundation in tectonic unity, there is no doubt that someday soon the people on every continent of earth will realize their fundamental similarities.
