In the period from independence to the early 20th century, Mexican fine arts continued to be largely influenced by European traditions.
Approximately 3.52 percent of respondents indicated no religion, and 0.86 percent did not specify a religion.
Mexico is known for its folk art traditions, mostly derived from the indigenous and Spanish crafts.
Pre-Columbian art thrived over a wide timescale, from 1800 BC to AD 1500.
In many ways, contemporary life in the cities of Mexico has become similar to that in neighboring United States and Europe, with provincial people conserving traditions more so than the city dwellers.
The Spanish arrival and colonization brought Roman Catholicism to the country, which became the main religion of Mexico.
