Iconografía mexicana V: Vida, muerte y transfiguración

edited by Beatriz Barba de Piña Chán

Life, death, and transfiguration are phenomena that cultures have been concerned about throughout history. Representation of each of them, however, is uneven, because death is always depicted as a skeleton, life is usually represented by plants, animals, or a human heart, but transfiguration is a process that not everyone cares about and even less depicted. In this volume, several authors analyze how Mexicans have artistically expressed ideas throughout history. They dissect the shapes of life, death, and transfiguration from prehispanic to contemporary Mexico. In Spanish.
