Ensayos sobre iconografĂ­a, Volumen I

edited by Carmen Aguilera

The study of images in sculpture, paintings, and codices, is a multidisciplinary task because direct observations are complemented by historical and geographical data, with field research, and archival consultation. This work brings together 52 essays on a variety of themes related to prehispanic and colonial Mexican iconography: deities, astronomy and calendar, toponyms, monuments, flora and fauna, cartography, ceremonies, feathers and stones, warrior outfits and gods. All these elements are described in detail in the text and provide valuable information on the culture and ideology of prehispanic peoples and their artistic conceptions. In Spanish.
