This is the first comprehensive book on Aztec art: eleven chapters illustrated with seventy-five superb color plates and hundreds of photographs| supplemented by maps and diagrams. Temple architecture| majestic stone sculpture carved without metal tools| featherwork and turquoise mosaic| painted books| and sculptures in terra cotta and rare stones – all are here.

Pasztory has placed these major works of Pre-Columbian art in a historical context| relating them to the reigns of individual rulers| events in Aztec history| and the needs of different social groups from the elite to the farmer. She focuses on the little-known aspects of the aesthetics| poetry and humanity of the Aztecs.
