From the Mouth of the Dark Cave: Commemorative Sculpture of the Late Classic Maya

From the Mouth of the Dark Cave: Commemorative Sculpture of the Late Classic Maya Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Explores the idea that caves formed by the erosive action of underground rivers in the southern lowlands of the Maya region played a major role in the ideology and world view of the Classic Maya. Bassie-Sweet shows how the Mayas' most sacred rituals were performed in these caves, which were considered to be the home of ancestors and of deities associated with the sun, moon, rain, wind and corn. Include 78 line drawings and photographs of Late Classic Maya wall panels and stelae, or inscribed stones.
