Designs from Pre-Columbian Mexico (Dover Pictorial Archives) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A sourcebook and treasury of 300 original motifs created by the Aztecs, Toltecs, Totonacs, and others. The designs were found on "malacates", small clay spindle weights or whorls made by the pre-Conquest people of Mexico and discovered in archaeological digs. Reproduced in sharp black and white, the designs may be reproduced, enlarged, reduced, or altered at will.

Synopsis:

300 bold, rhythmic circle designs, originally incorporated on small clay spindle weights, depicting man-like deities, animals both real and fantastic, reptiles, birds, flowers, masks, geometrical figures, wheels, foliage, maze-like patterns, frets — all employed with the boldness and fanciful characteristics of pre-Columbian art.
