Alson Clark "Top of the World, Cuernavaca Cathedral, Mexico" 26 x 32 inches, oil on canvas, excellent condition ~ Cuernavaca is known as the City of Eternal Springs. Originally, it was established by the Olmec, "the mother culture" of Mesoamerica, approximately 3200 years ago. Today, by car it is located thirty minutes south of Mexico City. Its pleasant climate has attracted royalty and nobles since Aztec times. Most of the Aztec emperors called Cuernavaca their summer residence. Foreign princes, archdukes, and other nobles have been attracted to this place because of its flowers, sun, fruits, fresh-water springs, and waterfalls. Today, it is called the Beverly Hills of Mexico City and many of these residents includes artists, intellectuals, and film stars. . Alson Clark titles his painting "Top of the World" referencing Cuernavaca's elevation of 5000 feet with majestic panoramic views overlooking a valley floor below. The Cuernavaca Cathedral is the city's main church, the cathedral was originally a gift to the population from Cortés, but it also doubled as a fortress, with cannons mounted above the buttresses.
