The trouble with the old term mestizaje was that it suggested that culture sprang naturally out of copulation. Hence the significance of a question posed by Nelly Richard: The display of religious objects is monumental in contrast to the miniaturization of the reproduction of a market scene that is just behind the Sun Stone.

Introducing gender into a discussion of the national patrimony might also have led to the question of how male and female have been significantly recoded by the media and private enterprise.
