El lenguaje enmascarado: Un acercamiento a las representaciones gráficas de deidades nahuas

by Katarzyna Mikulska Dabrowska

An attempt at understanding the language of the images used in the calendric-religious codices, as well as other types of visual representations of the Nahua culture. It is assumed that these sacred manuscripts used a particular register of the language of images, as is the case for oral expression. This is called "nahuallatolli" or "disguised language". The goal of this volume is to demonstrate the complexity and possibilities of the painting-writing system used by the inhabitants of central Mexico to refer to the supernatural. In Spanish.
