Ancient Mexican Designs (Dover Design Library)by Gregory Mirow
Synopses & Reviews
Aztec calendars, gods of medicine and war, animals, mythological characters, and scores of other striking images from the pre-Columbian world are at your fingertips in this treasury of permission-free art. Comprising a vibrant compilation of 240 meticulously reproduced designs from ancient Mexico, this volume abounds in distinctive portrayals of people in ritual costumes, objects from ceremonial and everyday life, and many other attractive and eye-catching motifs.
The designs have been adapted from authentic sources including bas-relief fragments from Chichén Itzá, ornate architectural details from ancient codices, Maya hieroglyphs, mask panels from several different temples, Olmec pottery figures, a mural from Teotihuacán, and numerous others.
From the serpentine splendor of a mask of Quetzalcóatl to the dynamic renderings of athletes at play on ancient ball courts, these intricately detailed images promise to add exotic and exciting flavor to brochures, menus, newsletters, and catalogs, as well as a host of art and craft projects. Browsers and devotees of pre-Columbian art will also welcome this rich selection of dramatic illustrations.
