About

Overview

Man’s relationship with the environment is recurrent in the textile and ceramic designs of the ancient cultures. This work talks about the relationship of man in the lithic stage and with the fauna that surrounded them, it is visible in their great artistic sensibility as well as in the building of myths and religious legends that were the fundamental base that boosted the development of prehispanic civilizations.

Spanish description:
"Los animales son deidades, epifanias de dioses, mensajeros de estos o simbolos de diversas ideas y ambitos del universo". Entre los pueblos mesoamericanos, esta percepcion adquirio niveles relevantes, ya que concedio a los animales un lugar preponderante en la configuracion de su religion. Se encuentran presentes tanto en los mitos de creacion del universo, como en la compleja simbologia asociada a diversas deidades o fuerzas de la naturaleza.
