About

Overview

The self-representation of the Mesoamerican man and the relationship of the human body with the universe makes up an essential testimony in the study of prehispanic cultures. Deformities, dental mutilations, ornaments or facial paintings were indicatior of social ranks. This work is based on the investigation work by the historian alfredo López Austin.

Spanish description:
En este libro se exponen la cosmovision y los rituales que los pueblos mesoamericanos celebraban en torno al rostro humano, asi como una importante seleccion de semblantes de piedra y ceramica. A partir de ellos, ademas de identificar los diferentes estilos plasticos, nos re-encontramos con el pasado de las culturas mesoamericanas.
